The Richmond–Fremont line of the Bay Area Rapid Transit system in the San Francisco Bay Area of the United States consists of 18 metro stations from Richmond to Fremont. It passes through El Cerrito, Berkeley, Oakland, San Leandro, Hayward, and Union City. Throughout its journey, it shares its tracks with other lines. This was the first of BART's lines to begin regular service; on September 11, 1972, the first revenue-service trains began running between Fremont and MacArthur stations . It is also the only line of the entire BART network that does not serve the city of San Francisco.
BART lines are usually not referred to by the color that identifies them on official system maps, so this line is rarely called the Orange Line, and this term is never used by BART officials. Although it is the only line that serves only the East Bay, it is also rarely called the "East Bay Line" but is almost invariably called "Richmond–Fremont Line", to avoid confusion with all the other lines that provide service to various parts of the East Bay sub-region.
Currently the line is being extended to Warm Springs and then to Berryessa in San Jose. This line will be the only one to go past Warm Springs.
