  • What are the different cable car routes?
    There are three San Francisco cable car lines. Two end up at Fisherman's Wharf and both begin at Powell and Market Streets. The Powell-Mason line goes up Nob Hill and heads to Bay Street while the Powell-Hyde line traverses Nob Hill and Russian Hill, arriving near Ghirardelli Square. The California Street line, which can be picked up at Van Ness Avenue or near the Embarcadero, runs through the Financial District and Chinatown.
