Great views of the city from Grandview Ave. I've been taking this twice a day (up-down) for two months and it's only been unavailable due to a power outage one time. Note - 8 bucks for an Uber to get you to the top.

The Incline itself is a fun and relatively inexpensive activity for the kids and it offers great views of the city. However, was very disappointed with the parking as the city funnels you into a pay lot that forced you into a special event rate...More

Soooo boring. Just go directly to the deck to enjoy the great view. No need to take the incline. The lady who sales the tickets is totally rude and you need exact cash to buy the tickets.

I love these inclines! They are a very inexpensive unique way to view the city. Cute cars going up and down the hillside. Great views from the top of all the bridges and sports venues. Doesn’t take much time to do but you feel like...More

Venerable, historic landmark that gives a fantastic view of the downtown part of Pittsburgh and surrounding areas. This is a 'don't miss' thing to do if you come to 'The 'Burgh'.

Worth the $2.50 for adults, but be sure to bring cash (no credit cards accepted)! This is NOT the incline that drops you into Market Station!

My family and friends took the incline at night where we can see Pittsburgh all lit up with the beauty of the three rivers in background. It only cost a couple bucks well worth it cause there’s nice restaurants and shops up top. We also...More

Having grown up in Pittsburgh (and having ancestors who designed this and other inclines,) I always ride the Duquesne when I am in this part of Pennsylvania. The old stations and cars literally and figuratively carry me back. I prefer to take an Uber or...More

At the top of the incline are several excellent restaurants. I like the smaller ones best, because they are intimate and if without a reservation, you might be able to still have a view without a window seat.
