Metro El Rosario (Spanish: Estación El Rosario) is a surface station on the Mexico City Metro.[1][2][3] It is located in Azcapotzalco borough, in the northern reaches of Mexico City. It serves as the terminal for both Lines 6 and 7.[1][2][3]

The station logo depicts a set of rosary beads.[1][2][3]

The platforms for lines 6 and 7 are at the same level, separated only by a bridge. This terminal, like many others, is multimodal, connecting to other kinds of transport. Metro El Rosario connects with suburban buses that serve municipalities such as Cuautitlán Izcalli and Lechería, in neighbouring México state. It also connects with trolleybus Line "I", which runs between El Rosario and Metro Chapultepec.[1]

This terminal was part of an intercity railway project, serving zones between El Rosario and Huehuetoca. Construction work on this railway line began in the 1990s, but it was never finished. Today some tracks and stations still remain.
