The Daly City–Warm Springs line (formerly the Daly City–Fremont line) is a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) line in the San Francisco Bay Area that runs from Fremont to Daly City. It has 19 stations in Fremont, Union City, Hayward, San Leandro, Oakland, San Francisco, and Daly City. This line shares tracks with other lines.

Though the line is green on maps, it is not referred to by color.

The line runs until 7 pm on weekdays and Saturdays. At other times, Fremont–Daly City passengers can transfer between the Richmond–Fremont line and the Dublin/Pleasanton–Daly City line at Bay Fair station.

The Fremont–Daly City line was the third of BART's five lines to open. Service began when the Transbay Tube opened in 1974.[1]

Due to an electrical fire at the Hayward Maintenance Yard in May 2008, BART temporarily slowed or suspended service on the Richmond–Fremont line south of Bay Fair on weekdays and Saturdays. Full service resumed in July 2008.[2]

This line will be extended to Warm Springs/South Fremont station (under construction) on March 25, 2017,[3] and then to Berryessa station in 2017–2018 as part of the Silicon Valley extension. The line may extend later to the proposed Santa Clara station.
