Metro Eugenia is a metro station along Line 3 of the Mexico City Metro.[1][2] It is located in the Colonia Vertiz Narvarte and Colonia del Valle neighbourhoods of the Benito Juárez borough of Mexico City.[1]

The station logo depicts a stork, and its name refers to the avenue above the station.[1][2] The name Eugenia literally means "The well born", so the stork is a birth symbol. The station opened on 25 August 1980.[3]

Until trolleybus service was discontinued in 2010,[4] this metro station offered transfers to the "O" line of the trolleybus, which ran between Metro San Antonio and Central de Abasto wholesale market located in Iztacalco borough.[5]

Metro Eugenia serves the Vertiz Narvarte and del Valle neighbourhoods.[1] It is located at the crossing of Eje 5 Sur Eugenia and Avenida Cuauhtémoc.[1]
