46th Street station is a SEPTA station in Philadelphia. It is located above the intersection of Farragut and Market Street in the Mill Creek neighborhood, and serves the Market-Frankford Line.

46th Street station is one of the original Market-Frankford elevated stations built by the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company in 1907. Immediately east of the station, the trains go underground into the Market Street Subway. A stub from when the elevated section used to continue along Market Street was once present, but was removed when the structure was replaced during renovations. 46th Street Station was closed in June 2006 as part of SEPTA's reconstruction of the Market Street Elevated line. The station reopened on April 14, 2016. The station runs along the south side of the 1926-built Provident Mutual Life Insurance building, which was converted into a Philadelphia Police Command Center in 2012.
