About Lombard Street

This famously steep street in San Francisco, with its eight hairpin turns, is claimed to be “the crookedest street in the world”. It’s a famous attraction in the city, seeing upwards of as many as 17,000 visitors per day in the peak summer season. Built in 1922, its notorious design was made to reduce the hill’s original steep quality of a natural 27% grade; way too steep for most vehicles. Despite that discouraging quality, Lombard Street has been host to many car chase scenes in film, like Bullitt starring Steve McQueen and Hitchcock’s Vertigo, in addition to being featured more sombrely in popular television shows, like Full House. Lombard Street stretches from The Presidio in the east—a former U.S. military fort and part of the sprawling San Francisco Recreational Area—and The Embarcadero in the west, a reclaimed three mile-long stretch of seawall. Standing on its and looking down to the east provides a beautiful view of Telegraph Hill and Coit Tower.

Why charter a bus for Lombard Street
