Crossing the City of Bridges

Sitting at the confluence of three rivers, Pittsburgh is a place where the industrial era collides with contemporary America, so that you’ll find beautifully ornate buildings showcasing sports history — very important history to locals — and refined eateries within the walls of old mills and factories.

If you’re looking in the right places, Steel City is beloved and full of surprises, so grab the keys to your Pittsburgh airport car rental alternative and discover the elegant mysteries of Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh favorites

Steer your Pittsburgh car rental alternative around the city to check out the wealth of museums, and a few distinctive attractions that have a special place in locals’ hearts.

purple lines

Duquesne Incline

This funky funicular has been carting visitors up to Mount Washington since the 1870s, and it only takes one look at the view from the top to understand why. The city skyline view is especially stunning at night.

Carnegie Museum of Natural History

Of the four Carnegie museums in town — all of them worthy of visits — this one has some exceptional exhibits, like the glittery gem display, the Hall of Ancient Egypt, and the interactive paleolab.

Randyland

Local celebrity, Randy Gilson, became well-known for turning a North Side warehouse on Jacksonia St into a home and studio by decorating it with psychedelic art made with found ephemera from the streets.

I took a short weekend trip to Michigan and driving in this vehicle was beyond amazing! I’ve never had a vehicle that has different levels for different terrains/weather. Unfortunately, my last day in Michigan it started snowing and I’ve never felt safer driving through snow. It doesn’t burn much gas which was one of my major concerns seeing as how gas prices are high. Luckily, gas was about .50¢ cheaper in Michigan than it is here in Pgh. I believe this vehicle also has the option for 3rd row seating? I did not use it but if I’m not mistaken it does. 10/10 recommended!

This was my first time using Turo and I must say I was beyond pleased. Justin and Susie offered me a great vehicle (their Lexus) and with the most step by step thorough instructions for beginners like myself. Without delay I would recommend securing a vehicle with Justin and Susie anytime you are in the Pittsburgh PA area. I am headed back to California and must say that renting through Turo (Justin & Susie) made my trip completely worry free! A blessing indeed!

The car was great, just what we needed to adventure around Pittsburgh for the week. It got good gas mileage and had nice amenities. Lissa was super responsive and helpful, and she even let us modify our trip twice. I will give one Turo-related tip and that is to make sure you leave yourself plenty of time if you are returning the vehicle to the airport prior to a flight. The app was not functioning properly for me at first and it caused me some stress around the timing of our flight, but ultimately it all worked out fine!

Ride was great. Instructions were a bit confusing at first because we never been in the area and contactless pick up was different from all of our other Turo experience with rentals. However, I liked that the car was very clean, smell great and we got lots of compliments for the Jeep from a lot of locals in Steubenville. We even got gifted a duck. Apparently it’s a jeep owner tradition to give a duck to another jeep owner when you see one so Randy we passed it on to you.

Had a great time! Mr. and Mrs. Driscoll were very accommodating with quick response times to any questions I had during my visit. The rental was just what my family needed to see the surrounding city while trotting through the hills. Just wish I had more time to put the top down and explore since it was a business trip. I'll definitely use them again if I'm in the area, and would recommend to anyone for a satisfactory experience.

Jonathan was an excellent host. Great price. Outstanding communication and the smoothest Turo pickup/dropoff experience ever. This car was super clean inside and out, and was perfect for getting around town. AWD height and suspension was great on PGH roads, especially brick streets. The smaller size and rear camera made parking dead-easy. The trunk is big enough to hold three carry-on size suitcases with room to spare, and the rear seat actually has enough headroom and legroom to fit an adult.

Great Ride! I'm the type of guy that loves to drive while listening to music and Bluetooth capabilities is a must! It was challenging to learn how to set up the Bluetooth at first, but Randy responded to my issue with the Bluetooth set up and it actually worked. After I got it all set up it was smooth! Randy also gave us two nice bottles of water when we checked in! And the Ride was clean!

Best Pittsburgh driving roads

Purple squiggle

Canton Avenue

The 37% grade on Canton Avenue makes it the steepest in the US, so even though it’s only a tenth of a mile long, you’ll want to push your Pittsburgh car rental alternative up this one.

Highway 30

For gorgeous views and sweeping curves on a less traveled road, zip east to Latrobe and head south to Ligonier, or go farther to climb the ridge at Laughlintown.

Lake Wilhelm Scenic Byway

Take your time cruising through farmland north of the city in your PIttsburgh car rental alternative, and take the turnoff for Lake Wilhelm for a pleasant six-mile spin around the lake’s edge.
