Metro Etiopía / Plaza de la Transparencia (formerly known as Metro Etiopía) is a metro station on the Mexico City Metro. It is located in the Benito Juárez borough of Mexico City.

The station logo depicts the head of a lion, a symbol of the African country of Ethiopia. Its name is given from the Etiopía traffic circle which existed in the same location before the construction of the subway station. This square was donated by the government of Ethiopia.

Metro Etiopía / Plaza de la Transparencia is underneath the intersection of Avenida Xola, Avenida Cuauhtemoc, Cumbres de Maltrata street and Diagonal de San Antonio. It serves Narvarte neighbourhood.

On March 27, 2009, the station name was changed to Etiopía / Plaza de la Transparencia (Ethiopia / Transparency Square),[1] as the Instituto Federal de Acceso a la Información Publica (Federal Institute of Public Information Access) is near the station, and so it would fit the name of the closest Metrobús station.
