Ride the incline and take in they city at night

The ride provided a beautiful view of the city at night. Once at the bottom it was a short walk over to station square for some food and drinks!

Nice ride. Enjoyed views from the top. Not too long of a wait. Not too expensive. Do the ride both day and night to experience each view of the city. Have exact amount for your ticket.

I seem to take the incline once every 10 years and it still doesn't disappoint. It's a unique experience with an interesting history. The views at the top are spectacular.

Not as famous as the Duquesne one, but still servicing the community and commuters daily. Views along the Monongahela and the south side.

Who in the hell shuts down the incline for maintenance during Christmas week? Is Penndot running the incline now? No prior notice and the buses aren't running very often to get to the other one.

if you visit the Burgh, you need to ride the incline. it's simple fun, and there's a great view at the top. enjoy some ice cream at a nearby ice cream parlor, and enjoy the scenic overlook.
