Ridley Park is a station along the SEPTA Wilmington/Newark Line and Amtrak Northeast Corridor. Amtrak does not stop here; only SEPTA serves this station. It is located at Hinckley & Morton Avenues in Ridley Park, PA, and contains a one-story station house similar to that of Media Regional Rail Station built into the embankment next to a platform, as well as a passenger drop-off area at Hinckley Avenue and Lincoln Street. Another platform also exists on the opposite side of the tracks on Ridley & Morton Avenues. Access between the two platforms is available from the nearby Ward Street Bridge just west of the station.

The current Ridley Park Station was built by the Pennsylvania Railroad as a replacement for a much more elaborate station house which was built over the tracks by the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad during the 19th Century.[1]
