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.

Take the incline up & walk over to the lookout for the view & picture taking. Plan for a lunch while watching a game & having a brew or cocktail at Red Beard's. The ticket takers at the Incline couldn't be more helpful or friendlier....More

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 are planning on using the subways or busses, you can buy a day pass at the machine, also. It was $7 last time I went and you can ride the inclines and busses and subways all you want that day. You will love the... More
