San Francisco's F-Line

The story of how America's most exciting and successful new transportation experience was built!

By Peter Ehrlich.

Cloth with dust jacket, 8.5x11.5", 290 pages, 500+ images in color and b/w. 2019 4th printing (revised).

"San Francisco's F-Line is the fun way to ride transit in one of America's greatest cities.

"Using multi-colored streetcars, built in the 1940s, 1920s and even earlier, it is a transforming experience that carries the rider back to a more genteel and carefree time, while providing an efficient and pleasant way to get from here to there in a modern era. Its creation has shown the world that public transportation can be exciting, fun, and a source of civic pride.

"The author, an active participant in the success of the F-Line, has written the book in an upbeat and breezy style, sprinkling anecdotes drawn from his own experiences and those of fellow workers and participants throughout the book. The book will thus appeal not only to those who are in, or follow, the transit industry, but also to the average reader, rider, and San Francisco Bay Area resident. Anyone who rides the F-Line will get a much fuller appreciation of this great city."
