“Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2014

I really enjoyed travelling up to Mount Washington on the Monongahela incline. There is a great view from the top but it is also interesting to look at the mechanics of the incline too.

“A great ride”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Unusual ride and a great view. From the top of the ridge you can walk along and get some great views of the city. Take the camera.

“a must do when in Pittsburgh”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

the best way to get to see the view of Pittsburgh is to take the incline to the top. There are several viewing areas for photo-ops and a sidewalk to enjoy a bit of a stroll. There are several restaurants that you can choose from.

“Great night views of Pittsburgh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

We took a round trip on this incline and had a great view of the city underneath us. The viewing platform along the bluff are breathtaking. the neighborhood is very pleasant and has what seems like great night life for younger people who like bar hopping.

“Riding an incline is a Pittsgurgh tourist requirement.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2014

We parked near Station Square. We were not impressed with it, but good views on the skyline there. Enjoyed the ride up to Mt.Washington. Good spot for more views and lunch. Bring exact change, not sure how much, it's piblic transportation so free with your medicare card.
