Magnolia Avenue station is a SEPTA Route 102 trolley stop in Aldan, Pennsylvania. It is located at Woodlawn an Magnolia Avenues, a four-way stop intersection in a residential area. Like the former Shisler Avenue station two stops north, Magnolia Avenue provides no shelter, platforms, or seats, and commuters must wait on the sidewalks of Woodlawn Avenue for trolley cars. Unlike Shisler, Magnolia is not near a park or school.

Trolleys arriving at this stop travel between 69th Street Terminal in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania and Sharon Hill, Pennsylvania. At this intersection, they run up and down the middle of Woodlawn Avenue. Magnolia Avenue is the most southerly point where the Route 102 line runs along the street in both directions. South of North Street, the tracks leave the street and re-enter a separate right-of-way.
