Allegheny is a station on the Port Authority of Allegheny County's light rail network. The stop serves the North Shore neighborhood and other adjacent North Side neighborhoods. Heinz Field, the Pittsburgh Steelers football stadium; Rivers Casino; Stage AE amphitheater; Community College of Allegheny County's Allegheny Campus; and Carnegie Science Center are within walking distance.

This station currently acts as the northern terminus of the Pittsburgh Light Rail system, and it is most distant station of the North Shore Connector project. It also marks the beginning of the Light Rail system's six-station "Free Fare Zone" within which riders do not need to pay to ride.[1]

Bus bays are located under the elevated station.

Future developments[edit]

Although Allegheny Station is currently a terminus, in the future, the Port Authority of Allegheny County plans to extend service westward toward Pittsburgh International Airport as well as northward into the North Hills area.[2]
