Elwyn is the southern terminus of the SEPTA Media/Elwyn Line. In 2013, this station saw 510 boardings and 496 alightings on an average weekday. Until 1986, service continued west to West Chester. Service was suspended due to poor track conditions. Plans by SEPTA to restore service as far west as Wawa by 2011 have yet to be fulfilled.
SEPTA broke ground on November 16, 2009, to add an additional 90 parking spaces in the congested parking lot, costing nearly a million dollars. Completion date is slated for June 2010. Previous plans to expand the tight parking lot were vetoed by the town of Elwyn, who insisted SEPTA reinstate service to West Chester instead.
Prior to being named Elwyn, the station was known as Greenwood.
