HOW TO GET AROUND:
San Francisco is small, and big parts of it are not all that hilly. Walking is the best way to see and photograph a place, and we hope to see a lot of you on the streets in June.
The City has decent public transportation. The best way to figure it out is by asking Google Maps for directions to a place by transit. You’ll generally be within a couple of blocks of a bus or streetcar stop. Cable cars are for tourists only.
Uber / Lyft
If you are in a hurry, these apps will have a car at the curb within minutes, and are very reasonably priced. For an even cheaper ride, try Uber Pool or Lyft Line, which let the driver pick up and drop off other passengers on the way to your destination. You can even use these apps to get a ride from the airport into town.
Compared to most places, this city has quite a few taxis. While they are a bit more expensive than Uber and Lyft, you can count on experienced and reliable drivers. Taxis also get to use special lanes that allow then to get around more quickly.
We don’t recommend it. Parking and traffic can make this a difficult option. It’s not impossible, but if you do drive, we recommend parking for the day and getting around other ways.
