Metro Tasqueña (sometimes also spelled Taxqueña) is a station on Line 2 of the Mexico City Metro system. It is located in the Campestre Churubusco neighborhood, within the Coyoacán borough of Mexico City, directly south of the city centre on Avenida Tasqueña and Canal de Miramontes. It is a surface station and the southern terminus of the line.
Tasqueña connects Line 2 with the Xochimilco Light Rail line, which runs from this station to the borough of Xochimilco. It also connects with two trolleybus lines: route A, running between Tasqueña and Metro Autobuses del Norte, north of the city, and route K, running between Ciudad Universitaria (UNAM's main campus) and the San Lorenzo Teconzo campus of the Universidad Autónoma de la Ciudad de México (UACM).
The terminal currently causes major traffic problems in the neighborhood, mainly by public buses and taxi cabs trying to cruise and flow into the terminals to pick up passengers both from the subway and the regional bus lines. It has become a major gathering center for informal merchants, selling of illegally reproduced media, prostitution and environment pollution.
