Bethel Village is a station on the Port Authority of Allegheny County's light rail network, located in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania. This street level stop is designed to serve area residents that can walk to the station as well as shoppers who want to access the variety of big box stores located near the station and just to the north of the South Hills Village mall. The stop featured a turnaround loop for PCC's operating on the 47D Drake service, and was intended for cars operating on shuttle services that terminated at Dorchester. However, the loop saw very limited usage, as cars were prone to derailing on its tight curve, and was dismantled in 1997.
