The Richmond–Warm Springs/South Fremont line (formerly the Richmond–Fremont line) is a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) line in the San Francisco Bay Area that runs from Richmond to Warm Springs station in Fremont. It has 19 stations, and goes through the cities of Richmond, El Cerrito, Berkeley, Oakland, San Leandro, Hayward, Union City, and Fremont. It is the only BART line that does not go to San Francisco. It shares all of its tracks with other BART lines on weekdays and Saturdays before 7pm.

This line is orange on the BART system map, but it's not referred to by color. As BART's only line that does not cross the San Francisco Bay (through the Transbay Tube), it is alternatively called the East Bay line or Land line.

This line was the first of BART's five rapid transit lines to open. Service from MacArthur to Fremont began on September 11, 1972, the first day of BART operation.[2] The line was extended to Richmond on January 29, 1973.[2] Initial fares were $1.00 for Fremont to MacArthur and $1.10 for Fremont to Richmond. The line was extended to Warm Springs/South Fremont station on March 25, 2017 as part of BART's Warm Springs extension project and the first phase of the Silicon Valley extension project; service to Warm Springs is limited to weeknights after 6pm and weekends.

This line and the Warm Springs/South Fremont-Daly City line will be extended to Berryessa station in San Jose in 2019. Current plans call for the line to be eventually extended to Santa Clara station.
