This is a great ride for $3.50 round trip. It will take up mount Washington and it offers great views of the Steel City. We took at night and it was worth every penny. Highly recommended.

Fun ride on a century-old funicular up the mountain across from Pittsburgh. At night you can street-park near the top and travel down and back up. Cheap date!

Step back in time and enjoy the view! I have always wondered just how many people that the inclines have safely transported over its lifetime. If the walls could talk! Enjoy!
