DescriptionEdit

Carriedo is the first station north of the Pasig River. It is the tenth station for trains headed to Roosevelt and the eleventh station for trains headed to Baclaran. It is named after Carriedo Street, which crosses below it. It is also the only station on the entire line with a canopy roof with the others being fully-roofed.

Near the station are historic landmarks such as Santa Cruz Church, Quiapo Church, Escolta Street and Plaza Lacson.

Transportation linksEdit

Due to Carriedo station's location being near three districts, namely, Santa Cruz, Binondo, and Quiapo, the station is served by many forms of public transport. Buses serving the Taft Avenue and Rizal Avenue routes and nearby routes, jeepneys, taxis, tricycles, and kalesas stop at and around the station. Kalesas and tricycles are particularly used in Binondo, due to the district's narrow streets.
