The simple station Prado is part of the TransMilenio mass-transit system of Bogotá, Colombia, which opened in the year 2000.

Location[edit]

The station is located in northern Bogotá, specifically on Autopista Norte with Calle 128 B.

It serves the Prado Varaniego, La Calleja and Canódromo neighborhoods.

History[edit]

After the opening of the Portal de Usme in early 2001, the Autopista Norte line was opened. This station was added as a northerly expansion of that line, which was completed with the opening of the Portal del Norte later that year.

The station is named Prado due to its proximity to the Prado Veraniego neighborhood of Suba.

At the west side of the station there is a Home Sentry supercenter.
