19th Street station is a subway station in Philadelphia. It is located underneath Market Street in Center City Philadelphia, and serves all routes of the SEPTA Subway-Surface Trolley Lines.

Touches of the original 1907 station, such as columns and railings, still remain. The station lies in the heart of Philadelphia's financial district, steps away from the Philadelphia Stock Exchange and two blocks due north from Rittenhouse Square.

Similar to 22nd Street Station, the station has two side platforms with a total of four tracks. Only the two outer tracks serve the station; the two inner tracks are used for the Market-Frankford Line as it travels between 15th Street and 30th Street. Since the station is only served by the trolley lines, there is no fare collection at the station; all fares are paid on board the trolley itself. Turnstiles will be installed in the future as part of the SEPTA Key project.
