The Reisterstown Plaza Metro Subway Station is one of 14 stops along the Baltimore Metro Subway line, located in Baltimore, Maryland, near the intersection of Patterson, and Wabash Avenues. It is the fourth most northern and western station on the line, with approximately 700 parking spaces.[1] It is within a close distance to the Reisterstown Road Plaza, for which it is named. It is also near the northwest division of the Maryland Transit Administration, where buses are stored.

Four buses currently serve this station:

Prior to 1987, when the Metro was extended to Owings Mills, the Reisterstown Plaza station was the final stop on the line in the northwestern direction.

In 1993, the Reisterstown Plaza station started to close early at 8 PM in order to save costs, and buses were extended to the Rogers Avenue station at the time. Within a few years, this early closure was abolished, and the station started to remain open until midnight again.
