Line 12 status[edit]

Line 12 has been officially announced, though the actual route has not been given yet, the intersections with their lines and the terminus location has been given. I'll update the description on that matter as soon as I get hard references. :) 18:35, 18 June 2007 (UTC) The line has been authorized, references can be found in the actual metro site. 03:03, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi there,

I'm working on updating my kml file to reference this line. It should be done by this weekend. You can find it here: [1] I wasn't sure about the exact location of a couple of them, though, as you'll notice, especially for the terminus, Tlahuac. Maybe you can help me with that?

Also, maybe you can create an account here so that we can talk on your talk page or something. Just a suggestion! :) --Richardmtl 13:54, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Metro zapata.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Metro zapata.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 22:02, 5 June 2007 (UTC)


Would it be important to mention that it is not allowed to take photos or video inside the metro? As far as i know it is because it is considered a strategic building or something like that. Would need to find out exactly why, though. Gigakight (talk) 03:55, 4 September 2008 (UTC)

Use of the word "superficial"[edit]

This article uses the word "superficial" several times. As a native English speaker, I am unaccustomed to this particular use, although I suppose it's sort of correct, as one of the meanings of "superficial" is "near the surface". However, usage of this word is normally taken to mean "little more than appearance" or "without substance". I think it would be better to say "surface", but I am not sure exactly how the lines & stations in question are built, so this word may not be entirely correct either. --BetaCentauri 19:31, 16 March 2008 (UTC)

I agree. It appears to be a translation from superficie, meaning 'at ground level'.

Fewer tables[edit]

Hi. I'm about to start a major reconstruction to this article. My main goal is to wipe out redundant information; see for example how many times are the colours of a line repeated. The "network" section should only include a brief introduction to the lines (a single table would work) so the rest of the info can be moved into the main list of stations page. In the other hand, there are many way-too-short sentences, need to fix that up. --Fluence (talk) 14:11, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

REDIRECT Mexico City Metro per WP:STATION[edit]

As part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Unreferenced articles I have completed a merge and redirect of all the metro stations in Category:Articles lacking sources from October 2006 or at least all the ones with article names that begin "metro". The lack of references made all the articles fail WP:V and WP:N, the solution per Wikipedia:Notability (Railway lines and stations) is to merge them all into the main article.

Total Recall[edit]

Was 'Total Recall' filmed here? Does anybody know the exact locations of filming? Should it be added to the article? (talk) 05:36, 28 March 2011 (UTC)

From being there, I would guess it's line 1... ah scratch that, I found this: Mwheatley1990 (talk) 16:26, 24 April 2011 (UTC)

Section on stations[edit]

Could this be merged? Perhaps just use thumbnail images for the stations and link them to their separate articles? The geo-referencing and the sporadic blocks of texts look ugly in the scope of the article and dont add anything that cant be found on their individual pages.

request for photos[edit]

Over at commons:Category talk:Mexico City Metro stations there is now a list of those stations for which commons does not have a photograph. Mexico City Metro photographers please take note of the stations for which we need photographs. Thank you. (talk) 16:20, 21 August 2011 (UTC)

New Map Urgently Needed[edit]

Dudes, Line 12 is totally open--I've been riding it daily. You guys need to reflect that on the map. Simply said: THE MAP NEEDS UPDATING. Do it and help the world. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:02, 1 December 2012 (UTC)

Over the next few days I will be uploading a new scaled map based on the given location of every station. I've tried to follow the actual railtrack for each line. It counts all 195 current stations, including all 20 stations of line 12 and renamed stations on lines 3, 6, 8 and B. I'll be ready to add future line 12 stations ("Valentín Campa Salazar" and "Olivar del Conde") when needed, namely early 2014 --Fluence (talk) 07:37, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Fares and pay systems[edit]

Either the section has an error, or something is unclear. One paragraph says, "The price for a single day ticket is currently MXN $5.00," or MXN $3 or zero, depending on eligibility. Another paragraph says, "STC Metro rechargeable cards were first available for an initial cost of MXN $10.00. The card would be a maximum of MXN $120.00...for 20 trips." At MXN $5 or less per single day ticket, 20 trips would cost a maximum of MXN $100, not 120. Are people paying extra to use a rechargeable card, and, if so, why?TVC 15 (talk) 09:03, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
