Nichols station (formerly Bonifacio-Villamor) is a station of the South Main Line ("Southrail") of the Philippine National Railways. Like all PNR stations, this station is at grade. It is located on the East Service Road of the South Luzon Expressway in Taguig City, on the foot of the Sales Interchange, and takes its name from one of the area's popular nicknames, Nichols, which is also the former name of Villamor Airbase. The station, one of two newly built stations on the South Main Line (the other is San Andres), opened for revenue service on March 25, 2010.

The station is the twelfth station from Tutuban and is one of two stations serving Taguig City, the other station being FTI.
