Washington Junction is a station on the Port Authority of Allegheny County's light rail network.[1] It is located in Bethel Park, Pennsylvania. The facility is designed both as a transfer station for southbound travelers (the Blue Line - SHV branch toward Upper St. Clair and South Hills Village, while the Blue Line - Library continues toward South Park and Library), and as a commuter park and ride facility. 230 spaces are located on site, designed for allowing travel to Downtown Pittsburgh by residents of northern Bethel Park and commuters who choose to use the stop by traveling from more eastern suburbs via Library or Broughton Roads.

History

Washington Junction was once an important junction on the Pittsburgh Railways Interurban service where the lines from Pittsburgh to Washington, PA and Roscoe, PA joined.[2]
