Road trip hubbing thru Mexico City

I am planning a road trip (rental car) in November. Arriving Guadalajara, then SMA, Dolores Hidalgo, Queretara flying out of Mexico City (Interjet) to Chetumal (1 week) return to Mexico City drive to Tlalpujahua (Monarch butterlies) return to Guadalajara.

I have never been to Mexico City before and looking at the maps, driving to the airport just to park a car does not look appealing. There is a bus service from Toluca (Caminante) that has hourly service to Terminal 1 at the Mexico City Airport (I drove through Toluca to Taxco in April) -- assuming I can find secure parking in Toluca -- is this a good means of getting to the Mexico City Airport for an outbound flight? or should I just drive to the airport?

Both Toluca and Queretaro have direct bus service to Mexico City airport so you could do any car renting from those two places to save you navegating Mexico City.

Fully agree - driving in Mexico City presents a challenge as signage is unclear (if it exists at all). My GPS (from Honda) is laughable in how bad it is in the city.

If you can do a bus from out of town, better, you can sleep on the bus and not suffer the stress.
