The Creek Line is a heavy-rail rapid transit line operated by Bawktown Transit. When finished, it will run between West Islands station on the western border of the town to the planned airport on the eastern border, but it currently only runs as far east as Hilledge Street. On official maps and signs, the line is colored blue.

History

Plans for a rail line crossing the Central Creek between Upminster and Westminster have existed before the planning of the Creek Line. The original purpose of the line was to provide a connection between the existing part of Bawktown and a then-planned underground minigolf course beneath what is now the shopping district. This line was planned to be called the Golf Line and to connect with the Field Line at Theater station. The plans for the minigolf course were cancelled, but plans for an expansion of Bawktown to the west still remained. When the plans for the extension of the MRT Expo Line from Farwater to Bawktown were announced, the town expansion plans, as well as plans for a new metro line going to this part of the town, were finalized. Bawktown would slowly be expanded to XE41 station, and the new line would be built alongside the Expo Line between XE42 and XE41, similar to the concept that is used by the Mountain and Jungle lines. This new line was named the Creek line, after the creek that the line had always been planned to cross over. When the line first opened, it only operated between Elytraport, the first station built along the line, and Shopping District, but it was soon expanded to Old Town, Hilledge Street, and later West Islands.
