Metro Buenavista is a station on the Mexico City Metro, in the Colonia Buenavista neighborhood of the Cuauhtémoc borough.[1][2] It is the southwestern terminal station of Line B (the green-on-silver line, Buenavista-Ciudad Azteca).[1] It also offers connections to the Insurgentes Metrobús bus rapid transit line.[1]

The station logo represents the front of an ALCO type diesel locomotive.[1][2] Its name comes from the nearby Estación Buenavista (Buenavista Station) main line railway station, which closed its doors to passenger traffic in 1999, but then reopened for the new Tren Suburbano in 2008.[3] The metro station was opened on 15 December 1999.[4]

Near Metro Buenavista is the central administrative building of the Cuauhtémoc borough local government,[5] the library Biblioteca Vasconcelos,[6] and on Saturday mornings only the Tianguis Cultural del Chopo, a flea market dedicated to youth culture (mostly music).[7][8]
