Winding it’s way through the streets of San Francisco en-route to the city’s hot attractions, this rolling landmark is yet another way of getting around the steep hills and curved streets.
The motorized cable cars are original cable cars which have been set on wheels. This ingenious creation makes it possible for tourists to discover all the hot spots in which regular cable cars cannot visit. The motorized vehicles visit the Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, Union Square and North Beach just to name a few. It is a 2 1/2 hour ride and frequent stops are made at each spot including Pier 39 which is shown in the above photo.
The first departure is at 10:00 am and although it costs more than your average cable car ride, you do have a driver/tour guide who will give you historical details on each stop.
