Chiba-Chūō Station (千葉中央駅 Chiba-Chūō-eki?) is a railway station operated by the Keisei Electric Railway located in Chūō-ku, Chiba Japan. It is 12.9 kilometers from the terminus of the Keisei Chiba Line at Keisei-Tsudanuma Station and is a terminal station for the Keisei Chihara Line.
Chiba-Chūō Station was opened on July 17, 1921 as Chiba Station (千葉駅 Chiba-eki?). This was renamed Keisei-Chiba Station (京成千葉駅 Keisei-Chiba-eki?) on 18 November 1931. The station burned down during the Chiba Air Raid of July 6, 1945. On February 10, 1958 the station was relocated to its present location as part of the post-war reconstruction plan for central Chiba. The tracks were elevated in December 1967 and the station was renamed to its present name on April 1, 1987. The Chara Line began operations from April 1992.
Chiba-Chūō Station has two elevated opposed side platforms with the station building underneath.
