Morelos is a station on the Mexico City Metro.[1][2][3] It is located in Venustiano Carranza borough, in the north of Mexico City.[1] The station logo depicts the profile of José María Morelos y Pavón, second instigator of the War of Independence of 1810.[1][2][3] Its name refers to the neighborhood which it serves.

This station has a peculiar feature; it is the only one that has two different logos: one, the profile of Morelos shown above; the other, a ¾-view of him. Both logos were stylised reproductions of peso coins from the 1980s. Today the ¾-view logo is used only in the Line 4 area of the station.

Metro Morelos was originally to be named Metro Terminal Tapo, referring to the eastern intercity bus station.[4] (locally known as "la Tapo"), located about a kilometre away; for this reason, the Metro authorities decided instead to name the station for the neighbourhood which it serves. Metro San Lázaro is closer to the bus station and, in fact, is directly connected to it by means of a pedestrian tunnel.

Metro Morelos has facilities for the handicapped, and a cultural display.
