The San Francisco cable car system is the world's last operational manually operated cable car system in the world. An icon of San Francisco, California, the cable car system forms part of the urban transport network operated by the San Francisco Municipal Railway, or "Muni" as it is better known.
Cable cars operate on three routes, two of which depart from downtown near Union Square and arrive in Fisherman's Wharf, and the third route is along along California Street. While the cable cars are used to a certain extent by commuters, their small service area and premium fares for single rides make them more of a tourist attraction.
