Are you a tourist looking to take San Francisco’s most iconic vintage form of transportation around the city? Or are you a cable car commuter? Either way, from Friday, September 13 to Sunday, September 22, your route around the city is about to get a lot less whimsical. Bus shuttles will replace all cable car lines for about 10 days as one of the gearboxes is refurbished.
Replacement bus service will serve all cable car stops, but will not stop at cable car terminals — instead, bus stops will be located nearby.
Here’s where to find them:
California and Drumm Terminal – Drumm and California streets in front of Hyatt Hotel
California and Van Ness Terminal – California Street and Van Ness Avenue next to the island stop
Powell and Market Turntable – Northeast of Ellis and Powell streets
Taylor and Bay Terminal – Southwest of Taylor and Francisco streets in front of the restaurant
Hyde and Beach Terminal – Southwest of Hyde and Beach streets
Regular bus fare will apply ($3 cash, $2.50 with MuniMobile or Clipper Card). Also, keep in mind that some parking near the bus shuttle stops will be temporarily removed.
During this time, SF Public Works will also be trimming trees on the sidewalk of Hyde between Beach and North Point and improving sidewalks. Regular cable car service is expected to resume Monday, September 23.
