$3 Per Person

I've been cleaning a bunch of old photos out of my cell phone, and I came across this one of the cable car information sign at the Van Ness terminal of the California line.

Of course, the fare for a cable car ride has been $5.00 since 2005 - this sign has been out of date for five years. 

While the price of a cable car ride won't be going down any time soon, the SFMTA Board just voted unanimously to restore half of the recent service cuts.  Starting September 4th service on some of Muni's most crowded lines will get moderately better than it has been for the last couple months.  It's a small step in the right direction.

That sign was actually provided by Market Street Railway, not SFMTA/Muni. A lot of the special signage for the historic F-line and cable cars is produced by our member supported non-profit.

Thank you for bringing it to my attention, we'll get it taken care of.
