We are fortunate in Mt. Lebanon to be located along several stops on the light rail’s red line. Our biggest stop is the Mt. Lebanon Station, on Shady Drive East. It is accessible from Washington Road by taking the stairs near East End Brewery to Parse Way, then taking the stairs or elevator down to the platform.

PRT’s bus line in Mt. Lebanon includes the 36 “Banksville,” 38 “Green Tree” and 41 “Bower Hill.” See the interactive map.

ACCESS is a coordinated, shared-ride paratransit service, which has been providing door-to-door, advanced reservation transportation in Allegheny County since 1979. ACCESS is open to the general public but primarily serves people with disabilities, clients of human service agencies and people aged 65 and over. 

Light rail service disruptions: Summer 2024

Starting in June through August 2024, there will be major renovation and repair work on the Red Line of the light rail system. Riders using the Arlington, Poplar and Mt. Lebanon stations will face some temporary changes in their commute.  

Alternatives include using the Washington Junction Station in Bethel Park taking the Blue Line, or boarding the 37 Castle Shannon bus shuttle, which stops at each Red Line T station between Mt. Lebanon and Station Square. This will run every 30 minutes during weekends and during peak times on weekdays. 

A short rail shuttle will run between Potomac Station in Dormont and Overbrook Junction in Castle Shannon. From mid-June to mid-July, shuttles will run every 30 minutes. From mid-July to end of August, shuttles run every 15 minutes during peak and 30 minutes off peak. 

In addition to the Red Line work, all three lines in May and June will be single-tracking—sharing the same line for both northbound and southbound cars—between the Willow Avenue and St. Anne stations. Expect several minutes of delay during this time. 

Work on the Alfred Street Crossing will run June 16 through July 9. Driveway access in the immediate area may be affected.

In June and July, the Red Short Rail shuttle will be single-tracking between Poplar and Mt. Lebanon stations. The rail shuttle will come every 30 minutes instead of every 15 minutes.   

In June through August, the Red Line between Dormont Junction and Potomac Station will be fully closed. Riders will need to use the 37 Castle Shannon bus shuttle or other shuttle routes instead.
