The Duquesne Incline has been part of Pittsburgh's transportation system (not an amusement ride) since 1877 like a trolley or the cable cars of San Francisco. Saturday's and Sunday's after noon are our busiest times. Expect to wait in line for about 10 minutes in both directions.
The Duquesne Incline (/ dj uː ˈ k eɪ n / dew-KAYN) is a funicular located near Pittsburgh's South Side neighborhood and scaling Mt. Washington in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States. Designed by Hungarian-American engineer Samuel Diescher, the incline was completed in 1877. The lower station is in the Second Empire style.
Duquesne Incline ran from 1877 to 1962 before closed and later reopened in 1963 with its original, elegant, wooden cable cars. The Duquesne Incline's upper station houses a museum of Pittsburgh history, including photos and a storehouse of information on inclines from around the world.
Duquesne Incline. Enjoy a spectacular panorama of Pittsburgh and its three rivers. Ride to the incline's Observation Deck in the 145-year-old Incline car to see what USA Today Weekend Magazine calls one of the "10 most beautiful views in America". Historical exhibits in the waiting room entertain between rides.
The Duquesne Incline is located down the street on W Carson Street just west of the Fort Pitt Bridge in view of Point State Park and has a provided parking lot. This incline carries you to an Observation Deck that USA Today Weekend Magazine described as one of the “10 most beautiful views in America.”
The Duquesne Incline in Pittsburgh Offers Stellar Views. As one of only two remaining inclines in the city of Pittsburgh, the Duquesne Incline is near and dear to everyone's hearts (much like its sister, the Monongahela Incline, located further down Grandview near Station Square).
