Alabang Station is a station on the South Main Line ("Southrail") of the Philippine National Railways. Like all PNR stations, this station is at grade. The station is located on T. Molina Street in Alabang, Muntinlupa, near the Alabang Viaduct of the South Luzon Expressway.

The station is the sixteenth station southbound from Tutuban and is one of three PNR stations serving Muntinlupa City, the others being Sucat and Muntinlupa.

Alabang station is the only PNR station to be completely rebuilt in a different location, having been moved from its original location at Montillano Street to behind the Metropolis Starmall Alabang on T. Molina Street. The new station was opened on April 19, 2010, and the old station was subsequently abandoned.
