The Richmond–Daly City/Millbrae line is a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) line from Richmond station to Millbrae station, in the San Francisco Bay Area. It has 23 metro stations in Richmond, El Cerrito, Berkeley, Oakland, San Francisco, Daly City, Colma, South San Francisco, San Bruno, and Millbrae. All of its track is shared with other BART lines.
BART maps show this line red, but no one refers to BART lines by color. It is commonly called the Richmond–Millbrae line, or the Richmond line.
The line runs until 8pm on weekdays and until 7pm on Saturdays. At other times, Richmond–Daly City/Millbrae passengers transfer between the Richmond–Fremont line and the Pittsburg/Bay Point–SFO/Millbrae line at MacArthur station for Daly City/Millbrae-bound trips and 19th Street Oakland station for Richmond-bound trips. The line terminates at Daly City station instead of Millbrae station on Saturdays, so the same transfers apply for Richmond–Millbrae passengers on Saturdays.
The Richmond–Daly City/Millbrae line was the fourth of BART's five lines to open. A few trains a day may have run between Richmond and Daly City starting in 1976, but all-day service didn't start until July 7, 1980 after reduced train headway through the Transbay Tube was approved.
SFO/Millbrae extension service
When BART opened the SFO/Millbrae extension on June 22, 2003, the Richmond–Daly City/Millbrae line continued to terminate at Daly City. BART extended this line to SFO and Millbrae during weekday peak hours effective February 9, 2004. Since San Mateo County is not a member of the San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District, SamTrans was responsible for the costs of the county's BART service. When SamTrans began to accrue deficits due to lower-than-expected ridership, BART agreed to SamTrans' request to operate only the Dublin/Pleasanton line south of Daly City effective September 12, 2005.
SamTrans and BART reached an agreement in February 2007 in which SamTrans would transfer control and financial responsibility of the SFO/Millbrae extension to BART. In return, BART would receive additional fixed funding from SamTrans and other sources. BART has since again increased service south of Daly City, and this line now terminates at Millbrae on weekdays and Daly City on Saturdays.
