My wife and I chose the Monongahela Incline over the Duquesne Incline on the advice of a local who said that the latter only provides good views for those who choose to eat at the nearby restaurants. The ride up and down was pretty quick, but we had to wait at the bottom. The view from up top is great, with unobstructed views from the street, and a street-level platform. There are also some places to eat up the side streets if you like.
Logistics: We drove over and parked at the Station Square parking lot (about $4 for ~2 hrs) for the Incline, but one could also take the T to Station Square. The Incline costs $2.50 one-way, or $3.50 round-trip (return on a transfer, good for 3 hours). Pay at the top, but the attendant can't make change. There are bill changers at the bottom.
