Media station is a SEPTA regional rail station in Media, Pennsylvania. It serves the Media/Elwyn Line, the former Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) West Chester Line. It is located at 301 Media Station Road (Orange Street and Station Road) in the heart of Media, Pennsylvania. The station includes a 231-space parking lot. In 2013, this station saw 692 boardings and 533 alightings on an average weekday. [1]

Media Station was built in 1960 by the PRR and is located several blocks away from Media–Orange Street station, the terminus of the SEPTA Route 101 line. However, no direct connection exists between the station and the trolley stop.

Woodrow Wilson spoke at the Media Station in 1912 during his first election campaign.[citation needed]
