Wonderfully located across from Station Square (many shops and dining options). The incline will take you to Mount Washington for some breathtaking views of the city and additional dining options. Best of all... seniors can ride the incline for free.

An exciting ride to a wonderful view of the three rivers junction. The view of Pittsburgh is exciting and while you are at the top visit the Seafood Grotto or an even higher look at the view and a wonderful meal

Love the Incline. Took it once at night and once during the day for a beautiful overview of Pittsburgh, Point State Park, and the stadiums. Nice ride up and down. Recommend it as a quick, inexpensive, and pleasant activity.

We waited quite a while to do this, but it was worth it. I didn't believe it would be as good a view as it was. I wish I would have had time to hang around on Mount Washington before going back down.

$3.50 round trip. Seniors and children under age 6 are free. Easiest way to get to Mount Washington to view the city. Not sure about parking because we walked to the incline from Market Square.

Great views of the city! Especially at night! Was only $3.50 for an adult return which is cheaper than the Duquesne incline! Bars and restaurants at the top too!

Took our out-of-state grandkids on the Monongahela incline after Sunday brunch at the Grand Concourse Restaurant. We enjoyed the ride up, the fabulous views of downtown Pittsburgh from a look out on Mount Washington & the trip back down. Seniors & kids are free. Round...More

A very neat way to get up to Mount Washington. You pay at a kiosk down below (which was very confusing on how to purchase tickets). The people in front of us were confused as well and had to tell us how to get tickets....More

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
