Usage[edit]

This template expands a name (first parameter) to link to the appropriate Light Rail Transit station article, without displaying "LRT station".

The optional second parameter (any character) will remove capitalization from the word "Station" (the default is capitalized).

The template can be abbreviated as {{lrt}} or {{lrts}}.

For example:

{{LRT Station|Recto}} expands to [[Recto LRT Station|Recto]] (with capitalization).

{{lrts|Universiti|x}} expands to [[Universiti LRT station|Universiti]] (without capitalization).

Discretion should be used on whether to name the place itself or the station that serves it. In railway articles it is generally preferred to use the station unless specifically talking about the place, for example that Legarda is located on Legarda.

Most LRT station articles follow the link form of terminating with "LRT Station" (or "LRT station").
