Transportation

Media is connected to Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, by the 101 trolley and is the only suburban town in the United States to have a trolley run down the middle of its main street. The trolley terminates just after the Delaware County Courthouse. However, this trolley can also get in the way of things, as it goes through the center of the main street. This, as one might imagine, can be quite bothersome. Media also has a stop on the R3 Regional Rail Line.
