    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

    For just $2.50 each way, ride the wooden cable cars to see unparalleled views of Pittsburgh’s skyline, named second on USA Weekend Magazine’s list of 10 most beautiful places in America.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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)

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

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

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

    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!

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

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