Congress Avenue is a stop along SEPTA's Media-Sharon Hill Trolley Lines in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. It is located at Garrett Road & Congress Avenue, and serves both Routes 101 and 102. Only local service is provided on both lines. The station is located on the north side of the terminus of the Congress Avenue intersection. It contains two platforms, but only one pre-fabricated shelter on the south side of the tracks.

Trolleys arriving at this station travel between 69th Street Terminal in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania and either Orange Street in Media, Pennsylvania for the Route 101 line, or Sharon Hill, Pennsylvania for the Route 102 line. Both lines run parallel to Garrett Road. The station is on the south side of an athletic field shared by two Catholic high schools; The Monsignor Bonner High School for boys and the Archbishop Prendergast High School for girls.

Congress Avenue Station is located at the west end of the Beverly Hills Trestle, which originally went over a former right-of-way of the Newtown Square Branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad, a line that ended just west of Fernwood-Yeadon Station on the Media/Elwyn Line. That right of way is now part of Naylors Run Park.
