The San Francisco cable car system is the world's last manually operated cable car system. An icon of San Francisco,
the cable car system forms part of the intermodal urban transport network operated by the San Francisco Municipal
Railway. Of the twenty-three lines established between 1873 and 1890, three remain (one of which combines parts of
two earlier lines): two routes from downtown near Union Square to Fisherman's Wharf, and a third route along
California Street. While the cable cars are used to a certain extent by commuters, the vast majority of their 7 million
annual passengers are tourists. They are among the most significant tourist attractions in the city. The cable cars are
listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

There is so much on the internet about San Francisco's Cable
Cars that it's hard to narrow down to just these links.
