    With the scarcity of taxi's in this town, I can't agree more when it comes to downloading the transportation apps such as Uber, Lyft, and Sidecar. If you prefer the familiarity of regular cabs, then Flywheel is the one they use.

    You mentioned the cable down to the ferry building. That's one of my favorite stops. Amazing artisanal shops and fantastic restaurants. Then the ferry can carry you away to Sausalito for a few hours. Can't beat that!

    No they charge for parking. Unless you absolutely need a vehicle, I wouldn't worry about bringing on since you can get everywhere by public transportation.
