Car 0161 on the Market Street Railway's 2-line. Parker Avenue south of California in 1949. - Jack Tillmany Collection

2 Sutter-Clement Streetcar

Opened: by Market Street Railway Company

Route: From the Ferry Building to the Sutro Baths terminal, operated via Market, Sutter, Presidio, California, Euclid, Arguello, Clement, 33rd Avenue, Geary Boulevard, and then private right-of-way.

Rail service end: July 1949

Comments from Jack Tillmany: "Before Euclid was extended over and through what was once Laurel Hill Cemetery, cars of the #2 line had to travel over Parker Avenue to California, then down California to Presidio and over Presidio to Sutter. Rail service was abandoned in 1949 in favor of motor coaches, by which time the Euclid Avenue extension provided a more direct route East and West."
