Support Us - Monthly, Annually, or Just Once

Your support can keep San Francisco’s wonderful historic streetcars and cable cars on track. Market Street Railway played a big part in making the dream of San Francisco’s historic streetcars a reality. We have constantly worked with Muni, the owner-operator, to improve and expand the streetcar service, while supporting the city’s famous cable cars too. We were in the front lines during the Covid crisis, successful leading the advocacy for restoration of streetcar and cable car service far sooner than was planned.

We don’t get a nickel from Muni or any government source. It’s people like you, who love the idea of colorful vintage transit playing a vital part in San Francisco’s daily life, who enable us to do what we do.

Here are ways you can help us keep the past present in the future.

Support us monthly or annually! You’ll get our exclusive quarterly member magazine, Inside Track, plus a 10% discount on all gifts and memorabilia we offer at our San Francisco Railway Museum and online store. Join Market Street Railway
