Portal de Usme (TransMilenio)

Portal de Usme (TransMilenio)

Portal de Usme is one of the terminal stations in the TransMilenio mass-transit system of Bogotá, Colombia, opened in the year 2000.


Portal de Usme is located in the extreme south of Bogotá, specifically on Avenida Caracas south of the La Picota national penitentiary.


In 2001, a few months after the opening of the system, the Portal de Usme was opened as the second terminal station in the system.

After a lawsuit from a passenger complaining of lack of handicapped access on the feeder routes at the station, the fleet of feeder buses was renovated to accommodate this service in 2005.

On February 2, 2002, police thwarted an attempt to use dynamite against the station by disarming six sticks of the explosive.
