Libertad LRT station (also known as Antonio Arnaiz LRT station or simply Arnaiz 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. The name Libertad survives as an area name, nowadays, after Libertad Street became a part of Arnaiz Avenue.

Libertad station is the third station for trains headed to Roosevelt, the eighteenth station for trains headed to Baclaran, and is one of the four LRT stations serving Pasay, the others are Gil Puyat, EDSA and Baclaran.
