San Francisco’s cable car stops are identified by brown and white Cable Car Stop signs. As the cable car approaches, raise your hand to signal the driver to stop and pay the conductor after boarding if you don’t already have a ticket or pass. If it does not stop for you then it likely means it is full. Between 8 am and 5 pm, to board at the end-of-line turnarounds at Powell & Market, Bay & Taylor and Hyde & Beach Streets, you must purchase your fare in advance. When lines are long at the turnaround stops, walking a short distance to the next stop can mean a shorter wait, although you might have to stand on the outside running boards holding on to the poles. Fares are for single trip one-way travel only with no transfers to other transit, and passengers must get off at the end of the line. Cable car tickets can be purchased from the booths at the turnarounds, or the MuniMobile app and Clipper card offer other fare payment options. The Visitor Passport and CityPASS also offer cost-effective unlimited all day travel on cable cars and other Muni transport.
