    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.

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.

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