Betty Go-Belmonte station

Betty Go-Belmonte station is a station on the Manila Light Rail Transit System Line 2. Betty Go-Belmonte station is one of the many elevated stations that can be found on the line. The station during its inception was formerly called as "Boston Station" but was renamed into the current name due to the minor realignment of some stations (the other being V. Mapa) that has caused the change of proximity to the Betty Go-Belmonte Street. The station is located in New Manila in Quezon City and is named after Betty Go-Belmonte, the late wife of House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. and the founder of The Philippine Star.[1]
