    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!

    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.

    Enjoy Pittsburgh's history at this museum, which includes a cable car that goes 800 feet above the city. $4.50 per trip, they have a gift shop and a museum at the top. Read more

    Go to the Duquesne Incline at night to see the prettiest sky-line ever

    This is the quintessential Pittsburgh tourist experience

    $4 round trip. Gorgeous views of Pittsburgh. Bring your camera!

    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.

    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.

    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

    Worst. Roller coaster. Ever.

    Exact change only. There's a change machine in the lobby -- trolley operator will not give you change. Adult trip one way is $2.50.

    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 incline cars are pretty cool. $2 each way. U pay at the bottom

    The woman who gives you the ticket is a grumpy old rude bitch. I have exact change and she was still utterly rude.

    $2.50 each way---

    Never be in a hurry when taking the incline. Tourists will undoubtedly be milling about wasting your time.

    Go from the top, down. Free street parking nearby. Stay on for roundtrip back to the top, without paying.

    Bring small bills! You'll need to drop your money in a box at the bottom of the hill!

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

    Start at the top.......parking is better

    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.

    Rick Beley · August 5, 2013
  • Mark S.

    The incline is really cool. But the staff is awfully grumpy.

    Mark Smith · June 8, 2013
  • Watts

    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

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

    Jay Walker · August 23, 2012
  • Alexa (@ladylexy) A.

    An experience! Ride the incline up to Mount Washington and enjoy the breathtaking city views.

  • Chris J.

    Make sure you ask for a transfer if you took the bus to either incline

    Terrific view!

    Take a trip to the top of Mt. Washington for a breathtaking view of the Pittsburgh skyline. Go at night to see the city light's at their brightest.- Ethan, Marketing Director

    Gift shop has beautiful Pgh memorabilia...special mention of the pens with floating inclines $3.50+ & handcrafted plates from Wendell August Forge that are extremely affordable & high quality!!

    Park your car at the bottom and then ride up to eat dinner at Mt Washington.

    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)
