North Avenue LRT Station, officially named Metro Manila Integrated Rail Terminal or Common Station,[1] is a proposed station on the Manila LRT Yellow Line under the Line 1 North Extension Project. It is also the first trans-modular station in the Philippines that will connect with LRT-1, MRT-3, MRT-7 and MRT-9. The station will be located in Diliman in Quezon City and is named after its location, which is at the corner of Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA) and North Avenue.

It will be the new terminus of the Yellow Line, sharing a common station with the Manila MRT Blue Line's northern terminus. The common station is also planned to be shared with the southern terminus of Line 7 project, which runs from North Avenue, Quezon City, to San Jose del Monte in Bulacan via Commonwealth Avenue and Quirino Highway.

From the terminus, a passenger could ride going to Baclaran via LRT-1, Taft Avenue via MRT-3 or Araneta via MRT-7.

Status

Although the foundations for the station has already been dug and cordoned off, the works on the station are temporarily stopped in order to give way for the redesigning of the station as an inter-modal station between the three rapid transit lines.

The station is included in the separate package that included the Malvar LRT Station.
