Yes, but you will need to change trains at Pisa Centrale and maybe somewhere else. See www.trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html using a travel date in the next 7 days to get costs on these local trains.

Or do as I do and just take the bus from outside arrivals 5 mins to Pisa centrale and a more frequent service at a cost of 1.10 euro

But some connections are over two hours, which is why you should use the link to the trenitalia website given to you in your first reply, to find the journey time at your own planned departure time.

If filling in 'to', 'from', the date and the 'hour' (=time) is difficult, then easy has to be a program that reads your mind.

And you don't even have to fill in the last two to get train times for the day following the time you're looking at your computer.

do you need a car in Levanto, or are trains efficent enough? Thanks for anyone who can respond. Planning a trip in the next several months to the Cinque Terre region. Then from there to Alba and Piemonte, where I know a car will be needed.

Also, can you rent a car in Pisa?

A car is a liability in the Cinque Terre. Pick up your car in Chiavari after leaving Levanto by train (or maybe in Rapallo depending on which rental company you are using).

Rentals in Pisa at the airport seven days a week and in the city six days a week.
