The Yellow Line is a mass transit line proposed by the Baltimore Regional Rail Plan in March 2002 for the Baltimore, Maryland area. It would begin at Columbia Town Center in Columbia, Maryland, and end in Hunt Valley, Maryland at Shawan Road.[1]

Original vision

As originally envisioned by the plan, the Yellow Line would conjoin with the existing Baltimore Light Rail at the BWI Business District Station, and remain connected until Camden Yards, where the two lines would spur to create a loop around Downtown Baltimore. In this small loop, the lines would both contain the stations of: Inner Harbor, Charles Center, Mt. Vernon, and Pennsylvania Station. At Penn Station, the Yellow Line would again split towards the north going through the neighborhoods of Station North, Charles Village, Waverly, Govanstown, Belvedere Square, and Towson. The Yellow Line would again meet up with the existing light rail line at the Lutherville station. The lines would again conjoin until the northern terminus of Hunt Valley. Another station in the Yellow Line system was proposed for Texas, Maryland.[1][2]

Places that would be served by the Yellow Line

Current status

The future for the Yellow Line proposal seems doubtful, as only two proposed rail lines were included in the "final" Baltimore Regional Rail System Plan: the Red Line and the Green Line.[3] In the current Baltimore Regional Transit Map, yellow designates a branch from the existing Baltimore Light Rail line to the Cromwell Station in Glen Burnie, Maryland. The branches to Owings Mills (north) and BWI Airport (south) are designated with the color blue.[4]
