47th Avenue is a side platformed Sacramento RT light rail station in Sacramento, California, United States. The station was opened on September 26, 2003, and is operated by the Sacramento Regional Transit District. As part of the Blue Line, it has service to Downtown Sacramento, North Sacramento, California State University, Sacramento, Rancho Cordova, Gold River and Folsom.

The station is located on the northwest side of 47th Avenue, and serves the Campbell Soup Company manufacturing facility, surrounding industrial areas, and the 47th Ave, Hogan, and 24th Street neighborhoods. An interesting feature is the passenger access configuration. The station has a center boarding area serving northbound trains; however, on the west side, the boarding area is integrated as part of a plaza serving both southbound trains and buses – a relatively efficient and cost-effective way of providing a pedestrian-train-bus interface.
