Bryn Mawr Station is an above-ground commuter rail station located in the western suburbs of Philadelphia at Morris and Bryn Mawr Avenues in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania.[4] It is served by most Paoli/Thorndale Line trains with the exception of a few "limited" and express trains.

The ticket office at this station is open weekdays 6:05 a.m. to 6:05 p.m. excluding holidays. There are 254 parking spaces at the station. This station is in fare zone 3 and is 10.1 track miles from Suburban Station. In 2011, the average total weekday boardings at this station was 831 and the average total weekday alightings was 757.[3]

The original Bryn Mawr Station was designed by Joseph M. Wilson and built in 1869 by the Pennsylvania Railroad. It was demolished in 1963, and replaced by a mid-20th Century mock-colonial style structure. The former freight house on the south side of the tracks, which dates back to 1870, is currently a local restaurant.[1]
