The streetcars most often seen on Muni’s historic routes are the streamlined PCCs, designed in 1935 by the Presidents’ Conference Committee of US electric railway leaders to bring modern looks and technology to streetcars. The most successful streetcar ever built, 4,500 PCCs ran in 33 cities, including San Francisco. This car was built in 1948 and served in Philadelphia from 1948 to 1989.
