Classic Cable Cars was established in 1959 when then owner Arnold Gridley purchased some authentic cable cars from the San Francisco Municipal Railway and decided to put them on a regular vehicle chassis. With the Bay Area's largest fleet of motorized Cable Cars, we continue to give timeless and entertaining tours on our historic vehicles as well as chartering them for private events of any kind! We have original cars from the California Street Line dating back to the late 1800s/early 1900s. All others are built from the ground up using the original Cable Car blueprints and constructed of solid oak and brass.
