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 Warm Springs/South Fremont station to Richmond station. It has 19 stations in Richmond, El Cerrito, Berkeley, Oakland, San Leandro, Hayward, Union City, and Fremont. It is the only of the five mainline BART services that does not run through the Transbay Tube to San Francisco; however, it shares tracks with the four other services in the East Bay. The line is colored orange on maps; however, BART does not use colored names for its services.

The Richmond–Fremont line was the first BART line to open. Initial services between MacArthur and Fremont began on September 11, 1972, with full service to Richmond on January 29, 1973.[2] The extension to Warm Springs/South Fremont station opened on March 25, 2017.[3] Until September 10, 2018, weekday service on the line only ran to Fremont station until direct San Francisco service ended around 6pm.[4]

A further extension to Berryessa/North San José station as part of the Silicon Valley extension project is projected to open at the end of 2019. The line is planned to eventually extend to Santa Clara station.[5]
