The South-North MAX extension was a proposed light rail line connecting Clackamas County to Vancouver by way of Portland's central city. The project was twice supported, then twice rejected, by voters in a series of TriMet ballot measures in the 1990s.

After Metro-area voters rejected a 1998 ballot issue for the South-North extension, the project was split into the Interstate MAX extension, which was funded by tax increment financing and became the Yellow Line; and what eventually became the South Corridor project, the Green Line and the proposed Orange Line.
