Passengers will be redirected from San Francisco cable cars to buses starting in January as the cable system is upgraded. Cable cars, the picture postcard element of the city tourism industry carry riders to and from fisherman's wharf up and down steep hills and to pier where boats depart for Alcatraz Island. $24 million is spent by San Francisco municipal transportation agency on car's underground infrastructure and electrical systems. The municipal transportation agency expects that the upgrade will come to end by month of June.
