This was definitely worth the $5.00 per person (cash only!). The ride up the steep incline is fun. There's lots of interesting information about the funicular at the top, and also some cool historic pictures of Pittsburgh. And, of course, the view from the top can't be beat! Note that there are not any bathrooms at the top or bottom.... More

I was told the Incline was a must-do! I'm not totally convinced of that opinion; on the other hand, it was a quick and fun, and I can at least say I did it. The trip up the Incline is $5 roundtrip -- which for some reason surprised me -- but I'm glad we paid the toll and went. We... More

The passenger cars look very old and historic (and they are). Everyone should take the trip at least once for a unique Pittsburgh experience. We rode up on the Duquesne Incline, enjoyed the museum and historic photos, then walked downhill to the Monongahela Incline and rode it down to Station Square. Great views of the city from the top.

This is a fun inexpensive attraction, but the cashier at the bottom station was extremely rude and inconsiderate. On the positive side though, the view was amazing especially that we could see all of the fall colors on the surrounding mountainsides. Overall a decent experience, it could have a lot better if the staff would have been nicer.

As a piece of Pittsburgh history the Duquesne Incline is a must if vacationing in Pittsburgh. Once down the incline there are indoor shops and restaurants worth visiting.

This could be a fun, inexpensive attraction. However, it is a very disorganized system. The staff working the lower station were extremely rude. They spent a lot of time yelling at people with simple questions and just being generally belligerent. This is uncalled for when families are just trying to enjoy their day. I read other complaints about this same... More

We did this as part of a walk from Incline to Incline which I reviewed in Mt Washington. How ever it is well worth doing even if you just go up and down. at the top there is a very mini museium. and the views are Grand.
