The Tama Toshi Monorail Line (多摩都市モノレール線 Tamatoshi Monorēru-sen ), also referred to as the Tama Monorail, is an important part of the Western Tokyo public transport network.
Operated by Tokyo Tama Intercity Monorail Co., Ltd., the double tracked, 16.0 km monorail line carries passengers between the suburban cities of Higashiyamato and Tama via Tachikawa, Hino, and Hachiōji in 36 minutes. The first section, from Kamikitadai to Tachikawa-Kita, opened in 1998, with the second section to Tama-Center opened in 2000. Large deficits from construction have caused the corporation to become insolvent.
Tachikawa-Kita, Tachikawa-Minami, and Tama-Center stations are the most important stations, enabling transfer at Tachikawa to JR East's Chūō Main Line and at Tama-Center to the Odakyū Tama Line and Keiō Sagamihara Line.
All stations located in Tokyo. Most stations have an associated shape/image (as seen in the leftmost column of the table below).
- According to the official settlement report on March 31, 2006, its assets total ¥20.5 billion, while its accumulated income (or rather, liability) is -¥22.8 billion, meaning the latter exceeds the former by ¥2.2 billion. In other words, the company is now in insolvency. This does not mean, however, the company is already bankrupt.
