Urbinaga is a station of the Line 2 of Metro Bilbao. It is located in the neighborhood of Simondrogas in the municipality of Sestao in the Greater Bilbao area.[1] The station before is Sestao and the station after is Bagatza. It was opened on April 13, 2002. Urbinaga Station's design is adapted to the difficult orography of the area; it is located on a viaduct, over the rail tracks of Cercanías Bilbao (Line C1), curved, and in an uphill. The station fare zone is B2 and it includes a small parking.

In the future, the station will become an intermodal that will connect the services of Metro Bilbao (line 2), Cercanías Bilbao (line C1) and the future Barakaldo's Tramway.[2]
