Location within Mexico City

Oceanía is a station on the Mexico City Metro.[2][3][4] It is located in Mexico City's Venustiano Carranza borough, to the northeast of the city centre.[2] It's a transfer station for Metro Lines 5 and B.[2][3][4] It stands on the corner of Avenida Oceanía and Avenida Río Consulado, which is part of the Circuito Interior inner ring-road.[2]

General information[edit]

The station logo is a kangaroo – an example of the fauna of Oceania.[2][3][4] Near this station are the facilities of the Deportivo Oceanía sports center, that offers many sports activities at low rates. Oceanía also transfers to trolleybus Line "G", which runs between Metro Boulevard Puerto Aéreo and Metro El Rosario.

The station was opened for service along Line 5 on 19 December 1981 and for service along Line B on 15 December 1999.[5]

Train crash[edit]

On 4 May 2015, during heavy rain with hail, a train coming to the station toward Politécnico station, in Line 5, crashed into another train which was standing at the end of station, possibly due to weather conditions.[6][7] Analysis of satellite has shown the metro station increased its subsidence from 3% to 7% grade.[8] 12 people were injured,[9] and an employee died after he fell on the tracks during the cleaning process.[10]
