This is just a part of Pittsburgh’s public transportation system but a definite tourist attraction as well. So there is an unmanned kiosk where you buy your tickets (very reasonably priced) and then you board this little trolly like car that takes you all the...More

The Duquesne Incline is as Pittsburgh as it gets! We've taken many out of town guests on this icon and love to watch their faces as they first view and then ride the incline... All have been quite impressed! A must see/do while visiting Pittsburgh

This was a last minute decision but so worth it! Definitely loved the views from the top and the history inside the offices. This was a cheap and easy afternoon adventure. One of the best views of Pittsburgh and Heinz field is from up at...More

It's worth the ride to the top to see the amazing views of the city, day or night. You have a view of the three rivers merging at Point State Park, the many bridges, the downtown area and beyond.

You get an excellent view from the top and the train itself is very interesting. Other than that, it is not much of an attraction. Not super easy to get to and then kind of bad attitude from staff. Be sure to have exact change...More

For only a few bucks (or use your connect-card) you can ride this historic funicular. It is only a 15 minute walk from the Wyndham at Point Park. Just walk across Fort Pitt Bridge and continue to the right for a couple hundred yards to...More

The Monongehela Incline is close to Station Square--also great. Goes to an outdoor viewing platform. The Duquesne Incline has a parking lot at the bottom on West Carson St.

We parked in the shopping center parking lot. It was very convenient. I don't remember that the parking cost very much. Hope that helps.

It's mostly residential at the top, and my recollection is that parking might be limited. Park in the lot at the bottom, ride up, exit the station and turn to your right. Walk about a quarter mile and there is a phenomenal... More
