Oceanía is a station on the Mexico City Metro.[1][2][3] It is located in Mexico City's Venustiano Carranza borough, to the northeast of the city centre.[1] It's a transfer station for Metro Lines 5 and B.[1][2][3] It stands on the corner of Avenida Oceanía and Avenida Río Consulado, which is part of the Circuito Interior inner ring-road.[1] The station logo is a kangaroo – an example of the fauna of Oceania.[1][2][3] Near this station are the facilities of the Deportivo Oceanía sports center, that offers many sports activities at low rates. Oceanía also transfers to trolleybus Line "G", which runs between Metro Boulevard Puerto Aéreo and Metro El Rosario.

The station was opened for service along Line 5 on 19 December 1981 and for service along Line B on 15 December 1999.[4]

On 4 May 2015 there was an accident at this station, similar to that at metro Viaducto in 1975, but without fatalities. During heavy rain with hail, a train coming to the station in the direction Politécnico (Line 5) crashed into another train which was standing at the station, possibly due to weather conditions.[5][6]
