Metro Chilpancingo (Spanish: Estación Chilpancingo) is an underground metro station along Line 9 of the Mexico City Metro. It is located in the Cuauhtémoc borough of Mexico City. It is very close to Metrobús station of the same name.
The station is named after the nearby Avenida Chilpancingo, which in turn is named after the city of Chilpancingo de los Bravo, the capital of the state of Guerrero. The station logo is the silhouette of a wasp since Chilpancingo means the place of the wasps in Nahuatl.
The station serves the Colonia Roma Sur and Colonia Condesa neighbourhoods in the Cuauhtémoc borough. It is located at the intersection of Avenida de los Insurgentes and Avenida Baja California. It was opened on 29 August 1988.
In July 2007 a man in his 70s died of a heart attack within the station.
