Metro Revolución is a station on Line 2 of the Mexico City Metro system.[1][2] It is located in the Colonia Tabacalera and Colonia Buenavista districts in the Cuauhtémoc borough of Mexico City, northwest of the city centre, on Avenida Puente de Alvarado.[1] It was first opened to the public on 14 September 1970.[3]

The station logo and name come from the nearby Monumento a la Revolución, which opened in 1938.[1][2]

The station is also near Avenida de los Insurgentes, one of the city's most important thoroughfares. The Insurgentes Metrobús bus rapid transit line has a stop in the vicinity of Metro Revolución.
