monongahela incline Mon Incline Reopens After Repairs

Pittsburgh’s Monongahela Incline is back on track after being out of commission for a week.

The incline resumed service Monday morning after being taken offline May 7. Officials had shut it down to repair worn cables.

The incline’s 635-foot track lifts riders 370 feet to the Mount Washington neighborhood overlooking downtown.

The Port Authority of Allegheny County had run shuttle buses to carry passengers from the incline’s upper and lower stations. Some commuters park at the top of the incline and ride it down into town. It is also popular with tourists.

About 2,200 people ride the incline on weekdays.
