The Ōme (おうめ) is limited express train service for commuters on the Chūō Rapid Line and Ōme Line operated by East Japan Railway Company (JR East). The train operates on weekdays only. All seats are reserved on this train.

Prior to 16 March 2019, this train operated as the Ōme Liner (青梅ライナー), which was a limited-stop reserved-seat "Home Liner" service. Since 16 March 2019, the Ōme Liner has upgraded to limited express status and becomes the Ōme.

History[edit]

JR East announced a new timetable revision which took effect from 16 March 2019 onwards. It announced the discontinuation of the Chūō Liner and the Ōme Liner, which was replaced by two new limited express services, the Hachiōji (はちおうじ) and the Ōme (おうめ) respectively. The Ōme operates less services than the former Ōme Liner, with only one Tokyo-bound train during the morning rush, and one Ōme-bound train during the evening rush. With this, a new ticketing system is now implemented, in which limited express tickets can be purchased in advance, unlike the Liner tickets which can only be bought on the day of boarding.[1]
