  • If youre scared of heights shotgun a few brewskis in the parking lot
  • If it's lit, it's still running. A nice rule of thumb if you're a pm rider
  • You don't have to pay until you exit, so you can probably technically ride round-trip for free (up and back without getting off).
  • Classiest way to travel to and from mt. Washington.
  • Exact change needed. (October 2012: $7 RT for two adults)
  • Did you know? The Monongahela opened on May 28, 1870. Today it is the oldest continuously operating funicular railway in the U.S.
  • It was so much fun
  • $5 for adults and $2.50 for kids round trip, can't beat the price, exact change , and yes it is cool .
  • Buy a transfer for a roundtrip ride. Go right before sunset for daylight view, have dinner at nearby Shiloh Grill (on Shiloh St.), then marvel at the sparkling skyline on your return trip after dark.
  • Need exact change!!
  • Bring exact change. Sometimes the change machine doesn't work.
  • Exact change needed. Pay at the top station; get a transfer for round-trip. (October 2012: $7 RT for two adults)
  • Es mejor tomar la ruta de arriba hacia abajo, siempre hay menos fila.
  • Yeah you could drive to the overlook but this is far more interesting
  • Use this Incline at least one side to go to Mount Washington.
  • Do NOT miss a ride on the incline. Its iconic and the views are great in ANY weather. Make sure you have small cash for the tickets.
  • Trolly is a waste of a fare. Humid, slow, and overcrowded. Take some selfies at the overlook for free and move on.
  • They take credit cards too!
  • Beautiful views. Definitely a must.
  • A Pittsburgh tradition.
