EDSA (sometimes EDSA-Magallanes) 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 at the intersection of the South Luzon Expressway and Epifanio de los Santos Avenue (EDSA, the avenue which it is named after) in Makati, below the Magallanes Interchange.

EDSA is the eleventh station from Tutuban and is one of three stations serving Makati, the other two being Buendia and Pasay Road, and is the last station to be physically located in Makati before entering Taguig.

The station was rebuilt in 2005 by the Makati city government as part of the overall redevelopment and beautification of the Magallanes Interchange Park which sits below the interchange. As a result, unlike other stations, EDSA station was not included in the 2009 remodeling of stations as part of PNR's rehabilitation efforts. A product of the prior rehabilitation is the station's lower platforms, which are designed only to accommodate older long-distance trains. For the convenience of passengers, the station has staircases to facilitate the boarding and alighting of passengers on PNR diesel multiple unit trains.

Starting September 10, 2018, PNR will extend the Caloocan Shuttle Line from Dela Rosa to FTI as its new terminus, EDSA station will be included in the newly extended line.[1]

Nearby landmarks

The station's major landmark is the Alphaland Southgate Tower and Mall on Chino Roces Avenue. Further away from the station are Magallanes Village proper, Dasmariñas Village and Ayala Center.

Transportation links

EDSA station is accessible by jeepneys plying the Chino Roces Avenue route, as well as buses plying the South Luzon Expressway route. Unusually for a PNR station, a taxi stand is located outside the station's entrance.

An MRT-3 station, Magallanes, is a short walk from EDSA station.
