Central City Station is the central train station in Republic City. Located in the eastern reaches of the metropolis, this formerly important commercial hub has deteriorated with the increasing popularity of automobiles. The plaza out front now serves mainly as an area for people to lounge or exchange goods. A monument of Fire LordZuko is located in the center of the plaza, and is a reminder of the many accomplishments that he made while helping build Republic City.
The station is frequented by orphans such as Skoochy, who can often be found in the area exchanging information for a price or looking for tourists to pickpocket. Gangs such as the Triple Threat Triad are known to scout Central City Station for potential recruits.
Bolin and Pabu set up a street act in front of Zuko's memorial statue in Central City Station in order to earn the yuans that the Fire Ferrets needed to compete in the Pro-bending Championship, but only managed to earn one yuan. The young earthbender was approached by Shady Shin not long after, who told him that Lightning Bolt Zolt was looking for new recruits for his gang operation. Bolin was reluctant to do so, but after he was given a stack of bills, he accepted and left the station with the gang member.
After Bolin went missing, Mako and Korra went to Central City Station in search of him, as Mako knew that it was one of his brother's usual hangouts. The two approached a group of young orphans and asked them if they knew of Bolin's whereabouts, to which Skoochy responded that his memory was "a little foggy". After Mako paid the boy, he informed the two that Bolin was at the station performing a "monkey-rat circus", but left after Shady Shin showed up and offered him monetary incentive. He warned the two that all the triads were preparing for something big.
