While most of the civilized world may have abandoned streetcars about 100 years ago, trolleys are still proudly clanking away on the roadways of Ye Olde San Francisco! Sure there are plenty of other “more convenient,” “easier,” and “faster” ways to get around the “city” (see SFIW’s Public Transportation Tutorial), but nothing quite as quaint as a good-ol fashion streetcar!
And not only has San Francisco tenaciously held onto its own fleet, but it has also seriously embraced its recycling program by acquiring and refurbishing streetcars from around the world and setting them back into public service.
So head on over to Market Street and enjoy the show! It’s like your very own daily parade of the obsolete!
