this is less attractive then the Duquesne incline, the view there is not as good as the one you see in the observation deck of D. incline. we just go to the upper station, to take a look and take some photo of the view.

Best way to get a panoramic view of the Three Rivers and downtown Pittsburgh. The ride up and the observation deck both offer stunning overlooks. Parking is easy at Station Square and then it's a short walk to the incline. Seniors ride free'

We rode this on a very very hot & humid day. Not a good idea. The cars have no a/c or fans and the heat was terrible. It made the relatively short ride unpleasant. It is a nice thing to do, but better on a...More

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".
