Four SEPTA bus lines also serve Fern Rock Transportation Center.
Broad Street Line:
Fern Rock Transportation Center became the northern terminus of the Broad Street Line in 1956, when the Broad Street Line was extended north from the original northern terminus at Olney Transportation Center
by the Philadelphia Transportation Company (PTC) and the City of Philadelphia. Fern Rock Transportation Center also hosts the yard and maintenance facilities for the Broad Street Line. All local and express trains on the Broad Street Line terminate at Fern Rock Transportation Center. All the Special Sport Express trains that run to the Sports Complex at AT&T Station also originate at Fern Rock. Broad-Ridge
Spur trains usually serve Fern Rock only during non-peak hours and on Saturdays.

The current SEPTA Regional Rail station at Fern Rock Transportation Center, located along the SEPTA Main Line, was built in March 1992 to accommodate Regional Rail commuters displaced during SEPTA's 1992/1993 Railworks reconstruction project. The new station replaced former Reading
Railroad stations Fern Rock and Tabor, respectively located north and south of the new station.
