Metro Velódromo (Spanish: Estación Velódromo) is a metro station located on Line 9 of the Mexico City Metro. It is named after the nearby Agustín Melgar Olympic Velodrome, or bicycle-racing venue, built for the 1968 Summer Olympics that were held in Mexico City.
Velódromo is an elevated station built at the portion of Line 9 that branches away from Viaducto Río de La Piedad to follow Eje 3 Sur (Avenida Morelos) when travelling west toward Metro Tacubaya. The station opened on 26 August 1987. The logo for the station shows the silhouette of a bicycle racer. It serves the Colonia Jardín Balbuena and the Granjas México neighborhoods.
Local bus service to the station includes trolleybus line S of STE, which runs west to Metro Chapultepec along the arterial thoroughfares known as Eje 2 Sur and Eje 2A Sur and is one of two high-frequency trolleybus lines that STE calls "Zero-Emissions Corridors".
