The Yokohama City Transportation Bureau (横浜市交通局 Yokohama-shi Kōtsūkyoku?) is the administrative agency in charge of public transportation services in the city of Yokohama, Japan.

Subway operations[edit]

The Yokohama Municipal Subway consists of the following lines:

Lines 1 and 3 operate with trains running through from Shonandai to Azamino. At 40.4 km, this is the second-longest subway in Japan after the Toei Ōedo Line in Tokyo.

The missing Line 2 was planned to connect Kanagawa-Shinmachi Station with Byobugaura Station, along the Keikyū Main Line, but has been cancelled.

Although it runs entirely underground, the Minatomirai Line is not considered part of the subway network, and is not administered by the Transportation Bureau, but by the Yokohama Minatomirai Railway Company.

Bus operations[edit]
