If you love San Francisco’s historic streetcars on Market Street and the waterfront, and its legendary cable cars, please consider donating to or joining our non-profit, Market Street Railway. We played a big part in making the dream of the historic streetcars a reality, and we constantly advocate to improve and expand the service, while supporting the cable cars too.

We don’t get a nickel from Muni or any government source, so we depend on support from our members and friends to preserve historic transit in San Francisco.

We’re particularly grateful to the businesses and foundations that have helped us.

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

Donate! You can help us by making a donation, either one-time or recurring monthly donations that cost as little as two rides on a historic streetcar. Donate today

Volunteer! We keep our overhead to a minimum by enlisting volunteers who fill many functions performed by paid staff in other non-profits. Become a volunteer

Shop! Yep. Shop. By shopping our online store or visiting our San Francisco Railway Museum & Gift Shop, you’re providing valuable help to Market Street Railway. All net proceeds from merchandise sales support our mission of preserving historic transit in San Francisco. And the merchandise we design ourselves, such as our vintage travel series, is unique to us, so it makes great gifts.
