Portal del Norte is one of the terminus stations of the TransMilenio mass-transit system of Bogotá, Colombia, which opened in the year 2000.

Location[edit]

Portal del Norte is located in northern Bogotá, specifically on Autopista Norte with Calle 175.

It serves the La Uribe, Villa del Prado, Nueva Zelandia, and Northwest San Antonio neighborhoods.

History[edit]

In late 2001, after the opening of the Portal de Usme, the Portal del Norte was opened as the third terminus in the system.

Nearby there are Éxito and Home Center superstores, as well as a Colsubsidio and a small shopping center called Panama.

In mid-2005, its entire fleet of feeder buses made by Mercedes Benz and operated by Alnorte were renovated to be put into non-TransMilenio service. A new operator, Alnorte Fase 2 began service with new Volkswagen buses that bore the branding of Brazil's Busscar.
