SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco’s iconic cable cars remain sidelined by the coronavirus pandemic but officials say the city’s historic streetcars will start rolling again this weekend.

As tourists begin to trickle back into San Francisco and the city reopens more of its economy, the city plans to restore service Saturday of the vintage streetcars that run along Market Street and the Embarcadero, the mayor’s office said in a statement.
