Metro Viaducto is named for the Viaducto Miguel Alemán which crosses the Calzada de Tlalpan here and becomes the Viaducto Río de la Piedad. These are just two sections of the major urban highway that’s crossed the city, east-west, since it opened in 1950. It’s first stretch, all the way in the west is called Viaducto Río Becerra. Because it’s so many Viaductos, most city drivers will simply call it Viaducto.
The station logo represents the clover interchange just north of the station. Locally, the station serves the neighborhoods of Viaducto Piedad and Moderna to the east, and colonia Álamos to the west. The station sees about 19,000 passengers every day.
Like most of the stations on this stretch of Metro Line 2, and the Calzada de Tlalpan, Metro Viaducto has just two exits, east and west. It’s an easy station to navigate. The neighborhoods on either side are a treat to visit. Check out the public markets in either Álamos or in La Moderna.
