Metro Lázaro Cárdenas serves the neighborhoods of Algarin, southern Obrera and Doctores, and Buenos Aires. On Metro line 9, it’s a fairly locals-only station. It also serves some of the neighborhoods in northeastern Benito Juárez. These are just below the Viaducto City Highway which is three blocks south of the station.
The station is named for the Lázaro Cárdenas Central Axis, i.e.; Eje Central, one of the most important northbound streets in the city.
A surprisingly bright station, though underground, it’s well illuminated during the day. Many passengers will exit at Metro Lázaro Cárdenas to transfer to the trolleybus running up and down Eje Central. The Parque de las Americas is just a few blocks south and west, along Diagonal San Antonio, which ends here at the intersection of Eje Central.
Eje 3 Sur, the east-west avenue, is here called Dr. Ignacio Morones Prieto to the west of Eje Central, and José Peón Contreras to the east.
