Cable Car with Grip Man

The cable car was first invented in the late 1800s and became successful in some U.S. cities, with San Fransisco being most notable. At their peak, over 50 miles of track was used by cable cars within city limits.

With the advent of the bus, calls were made to dismantle cable-car systems throughout the U.S. for the more budget-friendly alternative form of transit. A successful campaign to save them lead two cities in the U.S., San Fransisco and New Orleans, to earn the title of National Historic Streetcar Landmarks. The cable car is still used in both cities to this day.
