Metro Chilpancingo (Spanish: Estación Chilpancingo) is an underground metro station along Line 9 of the Mexico City Metro.[1][2] It is located in the Cuauhtémoc borough of Mexico City. It is very close to Metrobús station of the same name.[3]

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.[1] The station logo is the silhouette of a wasp since Chilpancingo means the place of the wasps in Nahuatl.[1]

The station serves the Colonia Roma Sur and Colonia Condesa neighbourhoods in the Cuauhtémoc borough.[1] It is located at the intersection of Avenida de los Insurgentes and Avenida Baja California.[1][4][5][6] It was opened on 29 August 1988.[7]

In July 2007 a man in his 70s died of a heart attack within the station.[8]
