The Purple Line is a planned commuter rail extension for the LYNX network in Charlotte, North Carolina. The Purple Line, or North Corridor, would serve as a commuter rail line between Mount Mourne in southern Iredell County and the proposed Gateway Station in Uptown Charlotte. It would primarily serve the towns of Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson in northern Mecklenburg County.

It is proposed to follow a northerly path along the existing Norfolk Southern O Line right-of-way, roughly paralleling North Graham Street and North Carolina Highway 115, as it extends through north Mecklenburg County. Currently, it is estimated to be 25 miles (40.2 km) in length and cost $261 million to complete the first phase by 2012 and an additional $112 million to complete phase two by 2019. Additionally, the line would contain 1,200 parking spaces and 10 stations along the corridor.
