What started in 1983 as merely a temporary alternative for tourists who couldn’t ride on a Cable Car while the system was being upgraded, is now one of the world’s largest fleets of historic streetcars still in operation. The F-Line is a beautiful route that begins in Fisherman’s Wharf, travels along the Embarcadero, and heads down Market Street to the Castro district.
The 1940’s era PCC model as seen in the picture to the right typically operate the route most often, but once in a while the opportunity strikes to ride a vintage |Milan Trolley circa 1928|. Just imagine riding in a polished wooden streetcar with vintage Italian advertisements, |Madeline Peyroux| faintly playing in the background, combined with beautiful views of the bay. If all public transit were this charming and romantic, maybe I wouldn’t drive so much. |Historic Streetcar Route Map|Market Street Railway|SF MUNI|
