Apartments in downtown San Francisco have easy access to many different public transportation options. City government has also made efforts to make the city safe for pedestrians if you choose to travel by foot. An environmentally-conscious city, San Francisco has a great bicycle sharing program and hopes to one day see the highest per-capita bicycle use in the nation. The weather here tends to cooperate for both walking and biking, making them an alternative that isn’t available in many U.S. cities.
The San Francisco Municipal Railway (Muni) is another way to get around the downtown area quickly and easily. The service operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week and carries over 200 million passengers each year. The fleet is made up of streetcars, light railcars, buses and the famous cable cars. There are 80 routes throughout the San Francisco area, and with 90% of residences within two blocks of a stop, chances are public transportation will be a convenient option for you.
