The North Avenue Light Rail Stop is one of 33 stops on the Baltimore Light Rail. The station is located along North Avenue (US 1) near the I-83 interchange, and is served by bus route 13. The stop has 37 spaces for commuters.[1] During the light rail's double-tracking project, when the northern section of the system was closed, the North Avenue stop was the northern terminus. At times the MTA still runs trains that terminate at North Avenue. The North Avenue stop is near the Baltimore Streetcar Museum.

Murder case

On November 7, 2006, a 17-year-old girl was murdered after she got off a train at the North Avenue stop in a highly publicized case that highlighted light rail safety. Two teenagers were charged for the crime, which took place during an attempt to rob the victim and her brother.[2] A girl, 16, was sentenced to 25 years in adult prison, while a boy, 15, was tried as an adult but later transferred to juvenile court for sentencing.[3]
