How to Ride Historic Streetcars
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
Single Ride Fare in paper cash, a valid fare receipt to transfer, Visitor Pass, or Clipper® card. Please note that full-size bikes are not allowed on historic streetcars, so bicyclists may need to find an alternate route.

2Get Your Fare Ready
Paying with Cash
When your train arrives at the platform, you may board and feed dollars/coins into the farebox at the front of the streetcar.
Using a Transfer
If you have a valid transfer in the form of a fare receipt (pictured) or it is within the 90 minute limit on your Clipper® card, you may ride as long as your transfer is valid. If you use a Clipper® card, you must tag on each and every time you enter any Muni vehicle.

4Board & Pay
Board the Streetcar
Watch your step as you cross the gap. On double-door streetcars you may board at the rear door with proof of payment, just like on regular Muni buses.
Collapsible strollers are permitted on all historic streetcars. Strollers may be carried on if there is enough room; otherwise, they must be folded. Strollers may remain open as long as they are under the control of the owner at all imes and the wheel brake is set. Strollers must not interfere with passenger movement and must not block the wheelchair securement area. Children may remain in the stroller while traveling on historic streetcars.
Listen to the announcements. Pull the the yellow stop cord along the windows of the bus to request a stop. Until then, enjoy the scenery! You'll be driving through one the most beautiful cities in the world.
6Exit the Streetcar
Once the vehicle comes to a complete stop, exit through the rear door.
