- Not to be confused with the more traditional Cable Car.
The Streetcars (also known as Trolleys) are unusable vehicles that can be spotted around San Francisco, and are electrically-powered (given the pantographs on the roof). Contrary to Cable Cars, Streetcars cannot be ridden, nor are seen transporting any passenger. However, they will act much like any vehicle on the streets, moving and stopping when necessary. Placing a car in front of the Streetcar also makes it stop. Hitting a Streetcar with enough force will cause it to become derailed from the line, like the regular tram.
There are currently two different streetcars:
Classic streetcars depicted in the game are based on the PCC streetcars, specifically the F Market & Wharves street cars. Notable aspects are the angled cabin, light arrangements and signs that reads the area they are operating. The classic streetcar can be seen in different colors and sometimes, with LCD screens on the sides. It also has a sign that reads "SAN FRANCISCO". They can be seen on various places of San Francisco, such, for example, on a main avenue under Bay Bridge.
Modern streetcars are apparently based on the Muni Metro Light Rail Vehicle, with a design that is reminiscent of the USSLRV, but are always seen as single cars instead of double cars, along with a few tweaks to match the game' setting (considering that the real-life inspiration was retired in 2002 in favour of more modern LRVs).
The modern streetcar can be only seen in a white color with red stripes on it, along with signs on the front, sides and rear that reads "SAN FRANCISCO". These streetcars appears in certain locations, but the most known ones are near Mission Dolores Park.
