Pennsylvania - Monongahela Incline

Pittsburgh, PA - The Monongahela Incline often called the Mon Incline for short is the oldest continuously operating funicular railway in the U.S. It opened on May 28, 1870, and has since then transported millions of passengers.

The Mon Incline was consolidated into Port Authority operations in 1964 and declared a historic structure by the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation in 1970.

Since then, Port Authority has made a number of renovations to ensure this historic mode of transit is enjoyed for years to come. Today, more than 1,500 riders use the Mon Incline on an average weekday, with that number nearly doubling for Saturday sightseeing.
