Pasay Road 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 Estacion Street (also known as Calle Estacion) in Barangay Pio del Pilar in Makati, making it only one of two stations (the other is Santa Mesa) to have its own access road. It is named after Pasay Road, the old name of the Makati section of Arnaiz Avenue.

The station is the tenth station from Tutuban and is one of three stations serving Makati, the other two being Buendia and EDSA. It is the only station in Makati, and the only station between España and Alabang, which serves intercity trains, being a stopping point for the Bicol Express and Mayon Limited.

In addition to having its own dedicated access road, Pasay Road station is also one of three stations (the others being Santa Mesa and España) to have its original platforms extended and raised in order to accommodate new PNR diesel multiple units. The original platforms have been retained for the use of Commuter Express locomotives and especially for intercity trains.

Nearby landmarks[edit]

It is near the Don Bosco Technical Institute, Makati Cinema Square, Waltermart Makati and several condominium developments both complete and under construction, such as The Columns Legazpi Village, the Cityland Pasong Tamo Tower, Avida Towers San Lorenzo and The Beacon. Further away from the station are Ayala Center, the Makati Central Business District, the Ayala Museum, other condominium developments such as The Shang Grand Tower and the BSA Tower, and major office buildings such as Ayala Tower One and the Philamlife Tower.

Transportation links[edit]

Pasay Road station is accessible by jeepneys plying the Chino Roces and Arnaiz Avenue routes, as well as buses plying the South Luzon Expressway route.

History[edit]

Pasay Road (then Culi-Culi) was opened on June 21, 1908.

The station building and platforms was renovated in 1975 (as Pio Del Pilar) following the double tracking of the line from Paco up to this station. The double tracking of Main Line South was further extended, reaching Sucat by 1978.

A new platform was built in 2009 north of the station building.
