Reisterstown Plaza station is a Baltimore Metro Subway station in Baltimore, Maryland. It is located at the intersection of Patterson and Wabash Avenues, and 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.

One bus currently serves this station:

  • 82 to Monte Verde (SB)

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.
