SAN FRANCISCO—San Francisco’s cable cars are back in operation after 10 days of inactivity. All three cable car service lines, Powell-Hyde, Powell-Mason and California, were out of operation for maintenance.
According to The San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, this was the last phase of the Gearbox Rehab Project. The reason for the project was to rehabilitate the gearboxes that have been in operation since 1892.
Buses took place of the cable cars, where passengers had to pay the normal bus fare of $3. There were drop-off locations near all cable car stops.
