Cable car was a type of car that operated on a cable railway. These cars were used for transporting passengers and for advertising products. Signal lights governed the movement of the cars. In San Francisco, the cable car system was operated by the San Francisco Municipal Railway and later Trans Francisco. One of the lines on this system was the Powell Line. This system was first introduced in the 19th century.

By the mid-23rd century, in the alternate reality, the cars had been equipped with anti-grav devices. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home; Star Trek Into Darkness)

Examples of these cars were seen in the background in both films.
