46th Street station is a SEPTA station in Philadelphia. It is located above the intersection of Farragut and Market Street in the Mill Creek neighborhood, and serves the Market-Frankford Line.

46th Street station is one of the original Market-Frankford elevated stations built by the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company in 1907. Immediately east of the station, the trains go underground into the Market Street Subway. A stub from when the elevated section used to continue along Market Street was once present, but was removed when the structure was replaced during renovations.[1] 46th Street Station was closed in June 2006 as part of SEPTA's reconstruction of the Market Street Elevated line. The station reopened on April 14, 2008.[2] The station runs along the south side of the 1926-built Provident Mutual Life Insurance building, which was converted into a Philadelphia Police Command Center in 2012.[3]
