The Circle Line is a loop rapid transit line of the Wentworth Metro network. It operates as a circle route orbiting the Wentworth central business district, with late-night trains returning to the depot terminating at Chalmers Street. The line forms an important part of the Wentworth Metro network, and is the system's third-busiest, accounting for 16.5 percent of annual ridership.

A loop metro line around the Wentworth CBD was first proposed during the initial planning stages of the metro system in the 1920s. However, due to an exhaustion of funding and the outbreak of World War II, construction did not begin until 1949. The northern segment of the line, between Chalmers Street and Shinjuku (operating in an arc shape) opened in 1959, while the remaining southern segment would not open until 1973.

The line is coloured yellow on system maps.
