The Pioneer Square South/Pioneer Square North stations are light rail stations on the MAX Blue and Red lines in Portland, Oregon. It is considered the central station on the MAX system, although the Eastside and Westside MAX lines technically end/begin just past the Galleria and Library stations to the west. Pioneer Square South is the second stop on the (original) Eastside MAX line. It originally served the Yellow Line from 2004 and 2009 until its relocation to the Portland Transit Mall.
The platforms are built into the sidewalks of Yamhill and Morrison streets and are part of Pioneer Courthouse Square, Downtown Portland's focal point.
