To Move For San Francisco

Move to San Francisco

Getting around San Francisco is quite simple. The main public transport lines belong to the Muni (San Francisco Municipal Railway), which runs almost 100 bus lines (many of which are trolley buses), and the famous "cable cars".

San Francisco, although it is full of climbs and descents, with such enthusiasm, can also be turned on foot. Alternatively, if you are tired, between a walk and another you can opt for a trolleybus; or, the famous Cable cars (Tram), which serve all the most important places in the city.

Getting around San Francisco by car is absolutely not recommended. Traffic is intense and parking is often almost a mirage; moreover, we would advise against hiring a bike, at least in the city, as the steep slopes are certainly not helpful.
