Elwyn is the southern terminus of the SEPTA Media/Elwyn Line. In 2013, this station saw 510 boardings and 496 alightings on an average weekday.[1] Until 1986, service continued west to West Chester. Service was suspended due to poor track conditions. Plans by SEPTA to restore service as far west as Wawa by 2011[2] have yet to be fulfilled.

SEPTA broke ground on November 16, 2009, to add an additional 90 parking spaces in the congested parking lot, costing nearly a million dollars. The parking lot has since been completed.[3]

Prior to being named Elwyn, the station was known as Greenwood.
