General informationEdit

The station logo depicts a coyote.[2][3] In fact, the Náhuatl word of Coyohuacan means place of coyotes.[2] According to early plans for Line 3, the station was originally destined to be known as Metro Bancomer, after Centro Bancomer, a banking center located above the station. This being a commercial name, metro authorities decided instead to name the station after nearby Avenida Coyoacán which leads to the popular downtown section of Coyoacán. The station opened on 30 August 1983 as part of a southward extension of the line.[4]

This station has a cultural display, which houses temporary exhibits by art students.[2]

Metro Coyoacán serves the Colonia del Valle and Xoco neighborhoods as well as Coyoacán.[2]
