If you are over 65 you can ride for free . . . but you MUST show your Medicare card! Any other form of ID, including your driver's license, will not be accepted. The ticket-taker lady made that quite clear to me! I felt like I had my fingers slapped- naughty-naughty girl. Otherwise nice ride up & down. Be sure to look at all the old pictures of Pittsburgh and definately go down the steps to see the actual gears in operation. Fascinating.
