The 69th Street Transportation Center, also known as the 69th Street Terminal, is a SEPTA terminal in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania.

SEPTA runs the following lines out of the 69th Street Transportation Center:

The 69th Street Transportation Center also includes SEPTA sales offices, stores, and eateries. The immediate portion of 69th Street surrounding the center is very popular with area residents, housing numerous bars, restaurants, shops, and the Tower Theater concert venue. A parking lot is adjacent, with street parking, both metered and unmetered, throughout the terminal's neighborhood.

The Norristown High-Speed Line runs entirely on its own right-of-way from the terminal to the northwestern terminus at the Norristown Transportation Center. The Media and Sharon Hill trolley lines run southwest from the terminal in the median of Terminal Square and then on a separate right-of-way after the Fairfield Avenue stop. Two former trolley lines, now bus lines, Routes 103 (Ardmore Trolley Line) and 104 (West Chester Trolley Line) run along the median of Pennsylvania Route 3 as far west as North Keystone Avenue, where the tracks abruptly end. SEPTA Route 123 connects this station with the King of Prussia Transit Center at the King of Prussia Mall.

As far as the SEPTA heavy rail system is concerned, the 69th Street Terminal is one of two stations located outside Philadelphia proper (the other is Millbourne).

The 69th Street Transportation Center celebrated its 100th anniversary in May 2008. It was renamed from 69th Street Terminal in 2011.
