Sometimes a Metro station will come to stand for an entire region. Such is the case with Metro Indios Verdes. The busiest station in the network, about 120,000 passengers pass through on normal working days.
The name comes from the 100+ year old moniker used to refer to the two bronze statues in Parque del Mestizaje. For most Mexico City residents it is just as common to refer to an enormous part of the northern metropolitan area as “Indios Verdes,” too.
Through the networks of buses, combis, and mini-buses, transport services extend to all kinds of place in the State of Mexico:
Coacalco de Berrioazabál
Tlalnepantla de Baz
Zumpango de Ocampo
But service also reaches as far as Hidalgo:
Villa de Tezontepec
Zapotlán de Juárez
and the capital, in Pachuca de Soto.
Metro Indios Verdes is thus surrounded by the infrastructure necessary to getting people on and off all of those buses. Alas, one of the solutions, in the form of Metrobus, and its Mexico State counterpart, Mexibus, adds still more infrastructure to the area.
