Although San Francisco may have been the origin of ridesharing companies Uber and Lyft, public transportation is still one of the main ways that residents get around. San Francisco is known for its cable cars, but has expanded its public transportation to include a light rail system (called the BART, or Bay Area Rapid Transit), buses and San Francisco Municipal Railway (Muni) trains. More than half of public transportation miles are fueled by electric power.
