San Francisco has a 100 walk score. If you don't like to walk, there are plenty of public transportation options and rideshares to get around.

San Francisco is one of the most accessible cities in the world to get around, and you won't even need to bring a car (seriously!). Because we're only 49 square miles and have three of the most reliable transportation systems on the west coast, plenty of transportation options abound. There's SFMUNI, Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), Caltrain, and even our world-famous cable cars. With their headquarters in San Francisco, you'll be able to find plenty of Lyfts and Ubers.
