BART Red Line|

The Richmond - Millbrae Line of the Bay Area Rapid Transit system in the San Francisco Bay Area consists of 23 metro stations from Richmond to Millbrae. It passes through El Cerrito, Berkeley, Oakland, and San Francisco, Daly City, Colma, South San Francisco, San Bruno, and Millbrae. Throughout its journey, it shares its tracks with other lines.

This line operates during the daytime, Monday through Saturday. There is no service on weeknights, Saturday nights, or at any time on Sundays. For service to/from Richmond and Daly City/San Francisco at those times, passengers must transfer between the Pittsburg/Bay Point Line and the Richmond - Fremont Line.

When BART officially opened the extension to the San Francisco International Airport on June 22, 2003, this line still terminated at the Daly City Station. On February 9, 2004, in order to attract more riders, BART extended this line's service to the airport and Millbrae during peak hours. The original service plan for this line was for trains to go straight from San Bruno to Millbrae, travel to the airport, and then go back towards San Francisco. This was changed a few months later to allow trains both coming and going from Millbrae to stop at the airport. However, BART, at the urging of SamTrans (which pays the operating expenses for BART's SFO extension), announced on August 11, 2005, that it was scaling back service on this line; hence starting September 12, 2005, all Richmond trains once again terminated at Daly City Station.

On January 1, 2008, this line became identified on maps as the Richmond – Millbrae Line, which includes service to/from all the stations between Daly City and Millbrae (with the exception of the San Francisco International Airport which is served by the Pittsburg Bay Point Line during all periods of operations) on weekdays only.

BART lines are usually not referred to by the color that identifies them on official system maps, so this line is rarely called the Red Line, and the term is never used by BART officials. It is sometimes called the Richmond Line.
