Metro Martín Carrera is a station on the Mexico City Metro.[1][2] It is located at the borders of the Colonia Martín Carrera, Colonia 15 de Agosto, and Colonia Díaz Mirón districts in the Gustavo A. Madero borough, in the north of Mexico City.[1] The station logo depicts bust of General Martín Carrera, a national hero who fought in the Mexican-American War of 1846–48.[1][2]

Martín Carrera is both a terminal station and a transfer station, linking Lines 4 and 6, both of which terminate here.[1][2] Like other terminal stations on the network, this one is multimodal: it connects with suburban bus lines that serve areas including Cerro Gordo, Vía Morelos, and others across the state line in México state.[1] The station also connects with trolleybus line "LL", which runs between the San Felipe de Jesús neighbourhood and Metro Hidalgo.[3] This station is near the Basílica de Guadalupe, a Roman Catholic shrine and place of pilgrimage.[4]

The station was opened with the others along the northern portion of Line 4 on 29 August 1981.[5] Service along Line 6 started on 8 July 1986.[5]
