Market Street Railway

870 Market Street, Suite 803
San Francisco, CA 94102

Market Street Railway is an independent advocacy group with the mission of preserving historic transit in San Francisco. We also serve as the nonprofit preservation partner of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.  SFMTA is the city agency that owns and operates San Francisco’s transit system, known as Muni, which includes the city’s historic streetcars and cable cars.

While we support Muni’s historic transit activities, we are not part of Muni and we receive no government money whatsoever.

Instead, we rely on membership dues and private donations to help keep San Francisco’s past present in the future by serving as an effective independent advocate for the famed historic streetcars that operate on the F-line and E-line, and the national landmark cable cars. These irreplaceable historic vehicles carry almost 50,000 riders per day.
