Sharon Hill is a SEPTA train station on the R2 Regional Rail Line in Sharon Hill, Pennsylvania. The R2 line offers southbound service to Wilmington and Newark, Delaware and northbound service to Philadelphia. This station is within walking distance of the Sharon Hill terminus of the Route 102 Trolley, although no direct connection exists between the two stations. It is not a manned station and has no ticket machines. The historic station building, which was originally built in 1872, [ [http://www.west2k.com/pastations/delawarepa.htm Existing Railroad Stations in Delaware County, Pennsylvania] ] is abandoned and is to be restored. It is located at Sharon & Woodland Avenues. Amtrak does not stop here, it is served only by SEPTA.

The nearest bus connection to Sharon Hill Station is SEPTA Suburban Bus Route 115, which is south of the Sharon Avenue bridge over the railroad tracks at the corner of Elmwood Avenue. Like the Sharon Hill Route 102 trolley station, there's no direct connection and access to this bus stop requires walking from the station, albeit at less of a distance.
