Wood Street is a station on the Port Authority of Allegheny County's light rail network.[1] Passengers embarking at Wood Street may travel free to any of the other stations in the Downtown area– First Avenue, Steel Plaza, Gateway, North Shore and Allegheny. Wood Street Galleries, an art gallery, is located directly above the station entrance. The station itself plays no role in fare collection, which is done on board the train.

The stop serves the northern portion of downtown, which features major office buildings such as One PNC Plaza, One Oliver Plaza, and EQT Plaza. The Cultural District, which features performance venues such as the Benedum Center, the Byham Theater, and Heinz Hall is located in the blocks just to the north of the station, while the David L. Lawrence Convention Center is within walking distance.
