At one time, there were 17 inclines in Pittsburgh. Now only two remain - the Duquense and Monongahela inclines. The Duquesne Incline is operated by the Society for the Preservation of The Duquesne Heights Incline. Here's a link: http://incline.pghfree.net/historycover.htm The Monongahela Incline is operated by the Port Authority Transit of Allegheny County. http://www.portauthority.org/PAAC/CustomerInfo/Inclines/tabid/119/Default.aspx
Pittsburgh, PA is often called the City of Bridges. It's no wonder. I believe there are over 700 bridges in the city and over 1900 in Allegheny County. http://pittsburgh.about.com/cs/pictures/l/bl_bridge_1.htm
