Araneta Center–Cubao station, usually called Cubao station, is a station on the Manila Metro Rail Transit System Line 3 (MRT-3). Araneta Center–Cubao station is one of the many elevated stations that can be found on the line. The station is located in Cubao in Quezon City and is named because of its location in the district of the same name and its location near the famed Araneta Center, one of the Philippines' most recognized shopping centers.

The station is the fourth station for trains headed to Taft Avenue and the tenth station for trains headed to North Avenue.

Nearby establishments[edit]

The most recognizable landmark that the station is located at is Araneta Center, home to popular shopping malls such as Gateway Mall, Ali Mall and Farmers Plaza. The Araneta Center complex is also home to the Philippines' biggest stadium and concert venue, the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Also there is a Nice Hotel on the opposite side of the Farmers Plaza.

Transportation links[edit]

Due to its location at Araneta Center, the station is located in a major transportation hub. Provincial buses stop at the Araneta Center Bus Terminal within the complex, and jeepneys for various destinations all over Metro Manila and Rizal province, taxis and cycle rickshaws are available upon request. Traffic regulations, however, prohibit cycle rickshaws on EDSA and Aurora Boulevard.

The station is also the transfer point for commuters riding the Manila Light Rail Transit System Line 2, or LRT-2. It is connected to its namesake station on the Line 2 via a walkway that goes through the New Farmers Plaza, past the Smart Araneta Coliseum and to the station's entrance just outside the Gateway Mall.
