This incline railway inches up (and down) the slope behind the Teatro Juárez to a terminal near the El Pípila monument. Heading up is fun, but to descend, you can save your pennies by walking down (there are two obvious, well-paved routes). Note: in 2015, the funicular had its first major incident when, after 13 years in operation, the axle broke and the funicular plummetted; two people in the carriage were injured. Because of this it was not operating at the time of research, but should be up (and down) and running by the time you read this.
