General informationEdit

The station logo represents Revolutionary hero Pancho Villa, leader of the División del Norte of revolutionary soldiers during the Mexican Revolution of 1910.[2][3] Its name is taken from the nearby Avenida División del Norte.[2] The station has a cultural display.[2] The station opened on 25 August 1980.[4]

Until trolleybus service was discontinued on line "O" in 2010,[5] this metro station was served by trolleybus line "O", which runs between Metro Mixcoac and the Central de Abasto wholesale market.[6]

Metro División del Norte serves Del Valle, Letrán Valle, Vertiz Narvarte and Santa Cruz Atoyac neighborhoods. It is located in the crossing between Avenida Universidad, Avenida División del Norte and Avenida Cuauhtemoc, in what used to be "Glorieta del Riviera".[2]

On 16 February 1994, Cuban Mexican vedette Judith Velasco killed herself in this station by jumping to the tracks dying instantly when she was hit by the train.[7]
