Grant Street Station
Grant Street B&O Station in 1968
|Location||Grant & 1st|
Grant Street Station, also known as the B&O Pittsburgh Terminal, was a passenger rail station on Grant Street downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (B&O) announced plans for it on May 3, 1955, after selling the original B&O Station bordering the Monongahela River to the state for construction of Interstate 376. It opened in 1957 to serve commuter rail traffic; all intercity traffic continued to use the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad's (P&LE) station (now called Station Square). Grant Street was the last such privately owned train station built in Pennsylvania.
After the Port Authority of Allegheny County (PAT) assumed control of the B&O's Pittsburgh—McKeesport—Versailles commuter route in 1975 (which it re-branded PATrain), Grant Street continued to serve as the Pittsburgh depot for this service. PAT discontinued the service in 1989; Grant Street itself was demolished in 1998. The site is now home to PNC Firstside Complex and the First Avenue light rail station.
