History[edit]

The station opened on December 30, 1916, initially named simply Funabashi Station (船橋駅?).[2] This was renamed Keisei Funabashi from November 18, 1931.[2] The station was elevated from November 2006.[2] From 2006, the station became a stop on the Skyliner limited express train service. When the Skyliner moved to the Narita Sky Access Line in July 2010, Keisei Funabashi became a stop on the replacement Cityliner service between Ueno and Narita Airport (later truncated to Keisei-Narita). Since the timetable revision on December 5, 2015, the station has become a stop on the Morningliner and Eveningliner train services.[3]

Passenger statistics[edit]

In fiscal 2011, the station was used by an average of 91,071 passengers daily.[2]
