Visit the Library for a special screening of Jim Yager Media's new documentary, Moving San Francisco, that looks at the City’s transit past and its future.

From its unique cable cars of the 19th century which conquered an impossible topography, to the groundbreaking effort to introduce a City-owned transit authority (the first in the nation), to the current wave of experimentation with ride-sharing companies, autonomous vehicles and car-free pedestrian zones, San Francisco offers some of the most compelling and surprising examples of the inextricable link between a city’s transit and the lives of its inhabitants. Author/historian Gary Kamiya hosts this eye-opening documentary, Moving San Francisco, that reveals the stories that help connect the lessons of the past to the challenges we face today in every modern city.

Presented by the San Francisco History Center in partnership with Jim Yager Media and Friends of the San Francisco Public Library
