Millbrae Station Improvements BART

Bay Area Rapid Transit’s (BART) Millbrae Station is the largest intermodal terminal west of the Mississippi River. As part of BART’s system expansion program, STV provided a range of design services for the busy station. Millbrae Station serves as a crossroads for 30,000 daily passengers making connections between the local bus system, Caltrain, BART service, and shuttles to and from the San Francisco International Airport.

To prepare the centralized hub for future transit expansion, STV performed station programming layouts, and architectural design bridging documents. Given the facility’s importance to the San Francisco area, the firm was tasked with creating a highly visible station with a design concept that pays homage to nearby structures. The use of exposed steel evokes a sense of lightness, aligning the facility’s design with the nearby airport.
