Providence Road station (SEPTA Route 102)
Providence Avenue station
|Location||Woodlawn Avenue & Providence Road|
|Structure type||Enclosed shelter|
Providence Road station is a SEPTA Route 102 trolley stop in Aldan, Pennsylvania. It is officially located at Woodlawn Avenue and Providence Road. Because trolleys travel in the middle of the street at this stop, there are no platforms. Parking is not available and commuters must wait on the sidewalks for trolleys. However, unlike the nearby former Shisler Avenue stop and existing Magnolia Avenue stop, the Providence Road stop does have a shelter where commuters can go inside during bad weather. That shelter was converted into a museum in 1997.
Trolleys arriving at this station travel between 69th Street Terminal in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania and Chester Pike in Sharon Hill, Pennsylvania. The shelter is located on the northeast corner of the intersection, which also contains a local school with an athletic field owned by the school extending as far north as Merion Avenue. Providence Road is also the name of a station on the Route 101 trolley line in Media. Unlike the two Springfield Road stations, this Providence Road is not the same street as the one in Media.
