Dozens of streetcar routes once marked the streets of the Bay Area, from San Francisco’s Mission District to the hills of Oakland. Explore maps of where the routes went and browse thousands of historic photos.
I've created this site as a personal passion project after becoming enchanted with both the modern and historical public transportation of San Francisco. You can follow me on Twitter or email me to get in touch.
Special thanks to Emiliano Echeverria, Jack Tillmany, Kat Siegal, Market Street Railway, the SFMTA and the Western Neighborhoods Project for resources and support on this project.
