The stations with the highest use are all terminal stations. These stations are all have multiple bus line connections to the suburbs and neighboring states. Observatorio station is next to the Western bus terminal which services 14 different bus companies and has bus berths for over 60 buses.

According to Wikipedia:
The top 6 highest use stations on the Mexico City Metro as of 2014 are:

Indios Verdes - terminal station of line 3 w 504,000 daily passengers
Cuatro Caminos - terminal station of line 2 w 473,000 daily passengers
Pantitlan - terminal station of line A w 414,000 daily passengers
Pantitlan - terminal station of line 9 w 410,000 daily passengers
Pantitlan - terminal station of line 5 w 398,000 daily passengers
Constitucion de 1917 - terminal station of line 8 w 370,000 daily passengers

Pantitlan Metro Station is one of the largest in the world and serves as the terminal station for lines A, 1, 5, and 9 and has connections with over 100 bus lines

According to the article Mancera wants it built within the next 3 years...that would mean construction has to start within the next few months.
Is there already an approved route? Via the Mexico-Puebla highway?

Does anyone know the approved route? It could be elevated in the center of the Mexico-Puebla highway, I guess?

The government announced a new express line between Buenavista Suburban rail/ metro terminal and the new Airport in Texcoco, the government spots are announcing it like a light rail but in an interview the Metro director said it will probably be a monorail.

Mexico unveils its first mass transit cable car
Wednesday, October 5th, 2016



MEXICO CITY, Oct. 4 (Xinhua) -- Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto on Tuesday inaugurated the country's first mass transit cable car to alleviate traffic congestion in the densely populated city of Ecatepec.

The cable car, which is called Mexicable and designed to transport some 29,000 passengers a day, is to operate in La Canada, a working class neighborhood in Ecatepec in the central State of Mexico.

The new option cuts commuting time by more than half between the line's two terminals, which now takes 17 minutes instead of the more-than-40- minute ride by bus.

New version of massive's map: Includes new cable car line:

Yeah it was pretty bad yesterday. My entire street was flooded with about 35cm of water. We even had flooding in our garage and lobby. Getting home was a mess, Polanco was completely clogged with cars and water.
