Getting There in Nob Hill and Russian Hill

Getting There

The thing about Russian Hill and Nob Hill is that they're both especially steep hills. If you're not up for the hike, a cable car is certainly the most exciting way to reach the top. Take the California line for Nob Hill and the Powell-Hyde line for Russian Hill. Buses serve the area as well, such as the 1-California bus for Nob Hill, but the routes only run east-west. Only the cable cars tackle the steeper north-south streets. Driving yourself is a hassle, since parking is a challenge on these crowded, precipitous streets.
