A City on the Move

Port Authority of Allegheny County, Gateway Light Rail Station

Pittsburgh, PA | 22,000 SF

Pittsburgh’s Gateway Light Rail Station does more than get riders from here to there. It connects a progressive city.

In Pittsburgh, a city deeply associated with steel and glass, Gateway Station is a modern expression of this manufacturing heritage. A striking curved glass shell conveys movement within a distinct city landmark.

The station’s expansive underground platform is visible from the street; from down below, riders can see the street, sky, and skyline while waiting for the train.

At the heart of a complex infrastructural element like a subterranean transit station is a simple concept: Public transportation is a fundamental principle of city living.

Gateway Station conveys Pittsburgh’s ongoing commitment to enhancing the urban experience for all residents and visitors.
