Usage[edit]

This template expands a name (1st parameter) to link to the appropriate metro station article, without displaying "metro station".

The optional second parameter (any character) will capitalize the word "Metro", and the optional third parameter (any character) will capitalize the word "Station".

For example:

{{Metro|Universitate}} expands to [[Universitate metro station|Universitate]].

{{Metro|Central Railway|x|x}} expands to [[Central Railway Metro Station|Central Railway]].

Discretion should be used on whether to name the place itself or the station that serves it. In railway articles it is generally preferred to use the station unless specifically talking about the place, for example that Howdon serves the neighbourhood of Howdon.

Many world metro system articles follow the link form of terminating with "metro station".
