Boustead was a station on the Port Authority of Allegheny County's light rail network, located in the Beechview neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The street level stop was located on a small island platform in the middle of Broadway Avenue, through which the T travels along former streetcar tracks. The station served a densely populated residential area through which bus service is limited because of the hilly terrain.

Boustead was one of eleven stops closed on June 25, 2012 as part of a system-wide consolidation effort.[1]
