Monumento LRT Station is a station on the Manila LRT Yellow Line (LRT-1). Like all other LRT-1 stations, Monumento station is above-ground. The station serves the southern portion of Caloocan City, and is named after the most famous landmark of Caloocan, the Monumento Circle, which houses the Bonifacio Monument, a famous monument to Andrés Bonifacio. The name Monumento itself is derived from the Spanish word for monument.

Monumento station is located on Rizal Avenue. It is the fifth station for trains headed to Baclaran, the eighteenth station for trains headed to North Avenue, and is one of the three LRT stations serving Caloocan City, the others being 5th Avenue LRT Station and the proposed Malvar LRT Station.

The station is also close to popular shopping malls and shopping centers like Uniwide and Ever Gotesco Grand Central, which are respectively located on opposite sides of the station. Manila Central University and its hospital are also near the station.

Today Monumento station is now installing two elevators and escalators, overpass over the guideway.

LRTA has added a platform at Monumento to go to Malvar, Balintawak, Roosevelt, and North Avenue. They will do the same at Baclaran once the proposed Cavite Extension Project has been approved and built.

Transportation links

There was a proposal to extend the Manila Metro Rail Transit System, or MRT-3, to Monumento, which would result in both stations being linked and Monumento LRT station becoming a transfer point between LRT-1 and MRT-3. Currently, these plans have been shelved in favor of an extension of the Yellow Line towards North Avenue over the same routing as the previous MRT-3 proposal.

There is also a Philippine National Railways station nearby, but it is presently closed, pending reconstruction.

Buses and jeepneys that ply the EDSA and Taft Avenue routes also stop at Monumento Terminal, where there is a nearby bus terminal. Taxis are also available from Monumento.
