Service at the station began on June 22, 2003,[3] as part of the BART San Mateo County Extension project that extended BART service southward from Colma to Millbrae and San Francisco International Airport.

El Camino High School is located near the station along the opposite side of Mission Road, and Solaire Village, a 361-unit, mixed-use transit village that includes a Trader Joe's supermarket, is nearby.[4] The station forms the current northern terminus of the Centennial Way Trail.
