Air Train is a fully automated people mover at San Francisco International Airport. The system was built by
Bombardier at a cost of US $430 million, and opened in 2003. The trains operate 24 hours a day on two
separate lines, covering a total of 10 kilometres. Air Train provides access to and from the international and

Muni Metro
Muni Metro is a pre-metro system, a tramway or light railway which includes segments built to rapid transit standards,
usually as part of a process of conversion to a metro railway, mainly by the construction of tunnels in the central city
area. It is serving San Francisco, operated by the San Francisco Municipal Railway (Muni). Since an average weekday-
passenger is 162,000, Muni Metro is the second-busiest light-rail system in the United States.
Muni Metro is the modern incarnation of the traditional streetcar system that served San Francisco, since the late 19th
century. Alike many streetcar-lines in other cities, San Francisco also converted street-car to buses. However, five lines
survived, converting to be light-rail during the opening of the Market Street Subway in 1980. The system underwent
expansion, and completed in 2007. It started the first new rail line in San Francisco in over half a century. The system
consists of 115.1 km of standard gauge track, seven light-rail lines, three tunnels, nine subway stations, 24 surface
stations, and 87 surface stops.
