Narberth station is a SEPTA Regional Rail station in Narberth, Pennsylvania. Located at Haverford and Narberth Avenues in Narberth, Pennsylvania, it serves most Paoli/Thorndale Line trains with the exception of several express runs.

The station was rebuilt around 1980 in a minimalist style common to that era, replacing a dilapidated wooden structure, under an agreement between SEPTA and the Narberth Borough Council, championed by Narberth Councilman Bharat Bhargava. The Ivy Ridge station was also built in the same style.

The ticket office at this station is open weekdays 6:15 a.m. to 1:35 p.m. excluding holidays. There are 111 parking spaces at the station, with 3 bicycle racks accommodating up to 15 bicycles.

This station is in fare zone 2 and is 6.8 track miles from Suburban Station. In 2003, the average total weekday boardings at this station was 866, and the average total weekday alightings was 716.[4]
