Adjacent to the San Francisco International Airport and located in the middle of San Mateo County, Millbrae is gently cradled in the sun-warmed hills that separate the Pacific Ocean from the San Francisco Bay. Major freeways border both its eastern and western boundaries, making Millbrae easily accessible from all parts of the Bay Area. Many hillside homes enjoy beautiful bay views. Well-cared for middle-class neighborhoods, twelve local parks and the Green Hills Country Club add to the charm of the residential community.
Millbrae's economic community is a vital mix of retail, shopping, restaurants, service businesses and hotels. The BART/SFO Extension opened in the summer of 2003. To take advantage of the extension, the city adopted the Millbrae Station Area Specific Plan in order to attract hotel, office, retail and housing development to the area around the Millbrae BART station.
The BART Millbrae Station is the only Intermodal rail connection west of the Mississippi, creating the first regional rail system in the
Bay Area. This unique station allows BART, CalTrain and SamTrans to connect under one roof, thereby maximizing regional travel options to passengers in the Bay Area.
Located immediately North of the Millbrae Overpass, and west of US Highway 101, the Station may be reached by car at the intersection of Millbrae Avenue and Rollins Road, and also via California Drive. The Millbrae Station's concourse connects the East side of the station to SamTrans buses, "kiss-and-ride" drop-offs and the on-site parking facilities for 3,000 vehicles. Pedestrian and bicycle access is available from both the east and west sides of the station. Bicycle lockers and racks are provided at both sides of the station. The Millbrae Intermodal Station now provides local residents and travelers with expanded transit operations, improved service and links to the Bay Area's growing population centers.
