Very inexpensive for a 'tourist' attraction. Fun ride with a great view up to the beautiful Mt Washington area.

Everything went very well. I had exact change so no problems there. The car was like a sauna but the ride was short and the view was beautiful.

Passing through and needed a break from driving. We loved the view but some simple signage as to what is near by would be nice. The shopping/eating areas were cool.

This is a great way to see the city from waaaaaaaay up! The round-trip fee is reasonable ($3.50) and the ride is only about 3 or 4 minutes each way. Once you reach the top, get off and take a walk around to enjoy a...More

Pittsburgh so up the incline we went. Got lucky that traffic was light on a Saturday morning, but it can get heavier around noon. Combine it with a trip behind the observation deck to enjoy some lunch or dinner!

There is ample parking at Station Square at the bottom of the Monongahela Incline. There is also street-side parking on Grandview Avenue (Mt. Washington) at the top of the incline. All parking in Pittsburgh is "pricey".

Not sure about that. We bought tickets at the office. If you did not know, there is a time limit on how long those tickets are good for. Only good for that day a so many hours for that day. The view from the top is great... More
