    This is the best incline to visit. If you want best view imaginable, this is the place to be. For even better view, walk up hill on Grandview by monument in front of Monterey Bay. Best. View. Ever.

    This funicular was first put into service in 1877 and restored in the 1960s. Enjoy the beautiful ride to the top where there is a scenic overlook of Pittsburgh, a museum, restaurants, and nightlife

    The Duquesne Incline reminds me of the movie Flashdance. If you're familiar with Pittsburgh and the movie you'll see Alex riding one of the Duquesne Incline cable cars when she goes to visit Hannah 🎥

    This is my daily commuting vehicle, but a favorite among tourists. It's $4.50 round trip for adults ($2.70 kids), but worth every penny for the WOW factor. Must have EXACT change though.

    One of best views ever seen. The bridges, three rivers, surrounding hills, Fall colors, it's all right there! Watch yourself rise above it a old-school, historic wooden incline car.

    YOU NEED EXACT CHANGE! 2.50 one way. Great views but don't wait in line there- walk a bit and there are decks along the street. Also parking $3 1st hour and $1 for every hour following

    Did you know? Incline railways work thanks to a pulley system. The descending car's weight pulls the ascending car up the mountain, & the ascending car prevents the descending car from going too fast. Read more

    Beautiful scenery from the top of the incline. You pay at the lower station, coming and going. Small museum at the top. Worth a visit.

    Worth the $4 and the time to ride to the top! The view is fantastic. Make sure to check out the statues of Guyasuta & George Washington on Mount Washington while you're up there!

    The machine room self-guided tour is the best 50 cents you can spend if you have an inquisitive kid...

    Hate to reiterate the EXACT change thing, but you need it. If you think you'll hit the ATM and put a $20 in the change machine, get ready for a pocket full of coins! Come with EXACT cash amount.

    Definitely worth the price. The ride itself is not the attraction though. The view of the city is. Don't miss the great food in this neighborhood either.

    Spend the 50 cents and go on the "tour" of the Machine Room at the top. It's neat to see how it works!

    Tickets from either incline work at either incline! So use one to go up and one to go down and enjoy the view on the walk down Grandview Avenue!
  • Alexa (@ladylexy) A.
    An experience! Ride the incline up to Mount Washington and enjoy the breathtaking city views.

    I guess its a nice view of the city, but if you're just going up to look its not worth it (especially if you're a family buying multiple tickets)

    Ticket said Dusquesne incline only but it worked on the other one anyway. Maybe the attendant was just being kind though.

    Pueden llegar en auto a la cima, cobran $5 pero en efectivo y en cambio exacto, la vista es bonita pero no maravillosa. Es una de las pocas atracciones así que haganla.
