The Bay Area Rapid Transit system (BART) was, along with the WMATA in Washington D.C., one of the great centrally planned post-war rapid transit systems aimed at addressing the rise of the highway and auto-centric suburbs after World War II in the United States. Planning began in the 1950s for a unified high speed rail system that would serve both the dense inner cities of San Francisco and Oakland and their newly expanding low-rise suburbs. Stations would be spaced closer in the central business districts and further out in the suburbs.
Originally planned to connect Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo counties BART was scaled back when San Mateo dropped out in favor of commuter rail service and the Marin line was dropped due to engineering concerns about running a rail line over the Golden Gate Bridge. Construction began in 1964 and the initial segments began to come online in 1972 and the majority of the system opening by 1974.
The Dublin/Pleasanton–Daly City Line, also known as the Dublin/Pleasanton Line, is the most recent BART line to open starting service in 1997. Branching off the
Fremont Line in Ashland it runs east along the median of I-580 to Dublin.
Plans are also being discussed to extend the line east to Livermore as either an electric third-rail BART train or Diesel Multiple Unit eBART train.
