Walnut Street is a SEPTA Media-Sharon Hill Trolley Line stop in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania. It is officially located at Garrett Road and Walnut Street, but Bywood Avenue is also included. The station serves both Routes 101 and 102, and only local service is provided on both lines. The station contains two platforms with plexiglass bus-type shelters on both sides of the tracks, both of which are at the far end of each platform.

Both lines run parallel to Garrett Road and Bywood Avenue, and Walnut Street is the easternmost stop where the lines run parallel to both streets. The station is located south of the Upper Darby Township Municipal Library.[1]
