San Francisco Travel Association Opens Two New VICs
The San Francisco Travel Association opened two new Visitor Information Centers (VICs) in January 2019 – one inside the newly expanded Moscone Center and the other in Chinatown. In addition to visitor guides, maps and brochures, the Visitor Information Center at Moscone Center sells the San Francisco CityPASS, Muni 1-, 3- and 7-Day Passports, cable car tickets, the Explorer Pass, Muni maps and hop-on-hop-off bus tickets. The multilingual staff, which speaks a total of 14 languages, also offers tips on public transit, trip planning, tours of the city, wine country, Yosemite and the region, as well as hotel and restaurant reservations. The Chinatown center provides individual trip planning assistance and information, maps, guides and public transit tips. Visitors can purchase tickets for Big Bus Tours and a variety of attractions. San Francisco Travel also operates a Visitor Information Center at Macy’s Union Square and is a partner at the California Welcome Center at PIER 39. San Francisco Travel assists more than 600,000 visitors per year between the three locations.
