Important Update: COVID-19


Welcome to the City of Millbrae!

Millbrae is a bustling city 15 miles south of San Francisco. Many of the 22,000 people who call the City home work in the technology, software, and biotech fields in the near-by Silicon Valley and San Francisco. 

Millbrae’s central location along the Bay Area Peninsula, close proximity to San Francisco International Airport and the BART-Caltrain intermodal station, and easy access to Highways 101 and 280, have helped make the City a major residential and commercial hub in the region.

The partnerships with SFO, BART and Caltrain have been essential to the development of the Millbrae Station Area Specific Plan. This is one of the City’s largest development projects, and will be a major driver for our economy, creating local, livable wage jobs in Millbrae. As a future stop for California’s high-speed rail, our vision is to develop a multi-modal transportation center that will serve local, regional and international travelers with a variety of amenities and services, and offer unmatched shopping and dining experiences.
