Metro Lázaro Cárdenas serves the neighborhoods of Algarín, south of Obrera and Doctores and Buenos Aires. On Metro Line 9, it is a fairly exclusive station for locals. It also serves some of the northeastern neighborhoods of Benito Juarez. These are just below the city’s Viaducto highway, which is three blocks south of the station.
The station gets its name from Eje Central Lázaro Cárdenas, i.e. Eje Central, one of the most important northbound streets in the city.
A surprisingly bright station, although subterranean, it’s well lit during the day. Many passengers will exit Metro Lázaro Cárdenas to transfer to the trolleybus that travels up and down Eje Central. Parque de las Americas is a few blocks south and west, along Diagonal San Antonio, which ends here at the intersection with Eje Central.
Eje 3 Sur, the east-west avenue, is called here Dr. Ignacio Morones Prieto to the west of Eje Central, and José Peón Contreras to the east.
