Penrhiwceiber railway station (Welsh: Gorsaf Reilffordd Penrhiwceibr) serves the village of Penrhiwceiber, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Wales. It is located on the Aberdare branch of the Merthyr Line between the town of Mountain Ash and the village of Abercynon. Passenger services are provided by Arriva Trains Wales.

A station at this location was first opened by the Taff Vale Railway on 1 June 1883, and was originally named Penrhiwceiber; it was renamed Penrhiwceiber Low Level by the Great Western Railway on 1 July 1924. It was closed by the Western Region of British Railways in October 1964 and a new station, named Penrhiwceiber, provided for reopening of the branch to passengers on 3 October 1988.[1][2][3]
