Metro La Paz Station

 

metro la paz station logoMetro La Paz is the terminal station on Metro Line A. Veritably in the shadow of the Caldera Volcano, it’s an impressive place to find oneself. As it’s a popular hiking spot, and classified as an “easy” climbing area, it’s also a good a place for a lookout over Mexico City to the north and west.

La Paz is named for the neighborhood of the Los Reyes Acaquilpan municipality in Mexico State. It was the site of extended 18th-century conflicts over the important land grants that supported the communities here. As the accords that settled these many disputed claims, the name has stuck ever since.

The station logo is thus a dove in flight to symbolize the peace accords, and the peace that has been honored ever since. The station, as a terminal station, sees significant traffic on regular working days. That also explains the extensive paradero bus-loading area to that dominates the stations west side. Many passengers arrive via bus from Ixtapaluca, Chalco, and Chicoloapan, and from points even further afield.

Opened with the rest of the Line in 1991, today Metro La Paz gets nearly 30,000 passengers a day. Prior to the 2020-21 pandemic that number was well over 40,000 and it’s expected to climb again.
