The simple station Calle 85 is part of the TransMilenio mass-transit system of Bogotá, Colombia, which opened in the year 2000.

Location[edit]

The station is located in northern Bogotá, specifically on Autopista Norte with Calle 85.

It serves the Polo Club and Antiguo Country neighborhoods, as well as the shopping areas on Carrera 15 and the nearby Zona Rosa.

History[edit]

After the opening of the Portal de Usme in early 2001, the Autopista Norte line was opened. This station was added as a northerly expansion of that line, which was completed with the opening of the Portal del Norte later that year.

The station is named Calle 85 due to its proximity to that road.
