Market Street Railway/City Guides Trolley Tour

Market Street Railway and San Francisco City Guides are again collaborating on a memorable vintage streetcar ride along Muni’s historic F-line on Sunday, October 23 from 1-3pm. This extra special history tour in the fabulous open-top “Boat Tram*” (Blackpool, England, Car No. 228) offers a fresh-air view of the sights and sounds along the F-line on Market Street and The Embarcadero. The tour follows the F-line, beginning and ending at the San Francisco Railway Museum at 77 Steuart Street just opposite the Embarcadero from the landmark Ferry Building.

Join tour guides Harlan Hirschfeld from City Guides and Mike Frew from Market Street Railway on one of our priceless “museums in motion” for their informative ride along the F-line where you will learn interesting historical facts about famous Fisherman’s Wharf, traditional North Beach, the scenic Embarcadero and colorful Ferry Plaza, the busy financial district, world famous Powell & Market, classic Civic Center, imposing Mint Hill and the lively Castro.

Sign up today for $30 per person. All proceeds go to support Market Street Railway and City Guides in their work to keep San Francisco’s transit history alive. Please note that your ticket purchase provides the funds required to charter the streetcar from Muni, so all ticket sales must be final.

Come learn how transit shaped San Francisco’s history!

*- In the event of inclement weather, or unexpected availability of the “Boat Tram,” one of Muni’s historic PCC streetcars will substitute.
