North Avenue MRT station, also called North for short, is a station on the Manila Metro Rail Transit System Line 3 (MRT-3). North Avenue is one of the 11 elevated stations that can be found on the line. The station is 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.

Contents

The station is the northern terminus of the MRT-3 and is the first and last station for trains headed to and from Taft Avenue respectively. The North Avenue Depot, an underground depot where the trains of the line are kept and maintained, is located near the station. The elevated tracks terminate abruptly beyond the station, but there is sufficient room for a terminating train to leave the station and stop before switching to the other track then entering the station again to begin the journey south.

Nearby landmarks

The station is directly connected to one of the Philippines' premier shopping malls, TriNoma which opened in 2007. It is also close to SM City North EDSA, one of the Philippine's largest malls. Other nearby landmarks include Quezon Memorial Circle and Triangle Park where Veterans Memorial Medical Center, Department of Agriculture, Philippine Science High School Main Campus, Quezon City Science High School and Ninoy Aquino Parks & Wildlife Center can be found. Philippine Medical Association secretariat, Philam Soccer Field and Sogo Hotel North Edsa are also within reach from the station.

Transportation links

North Avenue station is a major hub for buses plying the EDSA route. A bus terminal is located near the station. Taxis and jeepneys also stop in and around the bus terminal and the station.

A northern extension of MRT-7 is proposed. When completed, the station would be connected through a transfer point to the North Avenue LRT station.

Operating schedule

MRT-3 operates from 4:30 AM until 10:00 PM all days a week. It is closed for annual maintenance every Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Black Saturday and Easter Sunday.
