Avon Road station (formerly Bywood[1]) is a SEPTA Media-Sharon Hill Trolley Lines in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. It is officially located at Garrett Road & Avon Road, but Bywood Avenue is also included. The station serves both Routes 101 and 102, and only local service is provided on both lines. The station contains two platforms with plexiglass bus-type shelters on both sides of the tracks, both of which are at the far end of each platform. A former P&W-era shelter exists across the tracks from the westbound platform, but it is completely closed and boarded up.

Trolleys arriving at this station travel between 69th Street Terminal further east in Upper Darby and either Orange Street in Media, Pennsylvania for the Route 101 line, or Sharon Hill, Pennsylvania for the Route 102 line. Both lines run parallel to Garrett Road and Bywood Avenue, however the run along Garrett Road is interrupted by a curve between Sherbrook Boulevard and Avon Road.
