Libertad LRT Station (also known as Antonio Arnaiz LRT Station or simply Arnaiz LRT Station) is a station on the Manila LRT (LRT-1). Like all other of Manila's LRT-1 stations, Libertad Station is above-ground. The station is located in Pasay at the corner of Taft Avenue and Arnaiz Avenue. The station is named after the former Libertad (Spanish for "liberty") Street, which is a junction of both Roxas Boulevard and Taft Avenue in Pasay.
