The views from the top of the Incline are fantastic! All three rivers are in clear view as is the city in all its glory. Very picturesque, especially on a sunny day. At night the lights are on full display, also beautiful. The Incline itself...More

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

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.

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.
