The Monongahela Incline is a great way to see some great views from Mt Washington. It only costs $3.50 round trip- there was an automated machine to purchase tickets that even took credit cards. (We brought exact change as we had read the previous reviews)....More

Very nice way to access the top of the mountain for some scenic views of the city. Incline also has some history to it.

This is an inexpensive way to get really great views. $3.50 round-trip. There are a few look out spots at the top to see Pittsburgh and take the requisite photos. There is also an interesting neighborhood at the top (Fort Washington) with a few small...More

This is a great sightseeing thing to do. It's also like a trip back in time. However it was a 95° day and there is no circulation in the car as it travels up mountain .... we were all Melting !

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.

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
