Dawn (PAT station)
|Address||off of Dawn Avenue
|Owned by||Port Authority|
Dawn is 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 located in an especially hilly portion of a neighborhood known for its rolling terrain, providing access to commuters within walking distance. The station is located along the South Busway at the south end of the Palm Garden trestle and also serves as a transfer opportunity to the one city bus that stops at the same location.
The original Dawn stop was established at the south end of the Palm Garden trestle where Dawn Avenue crossed the Pittsburgh Railways trolley right of way. In the 1950s the stop was served by the 38 Mt. Lebanon, 39 Brookline 42 Dormont and 43 Neeld services. Just south of the stop was a junction where the line continued on to West Liberty Avenue (service 38 and 39) with the branch to the west proceeding to Broadway (service 42 and 43). When the West Liberty Avenue lines were abandoned all services used Broadway, being renumbered 42/38 Mt. Lebanon Beechview and eventually becoming the 42 South Hills Village, the current Red Line.
