The Nankō Port Town Line(南港ポートタウン線,Nankō Pōto-taun-sen), also called New Tram, is an automated guideway transit system operated by Osaka Municipal Transportation Bureau in Suminoe-ku, Osaka, Japan. The line was constructed to serve as the main public transportation for newly built Osaka South Port habitations and facilities. An extension of the line from Cosmosquare to Trade Center-mae was once owned and operated by an Osaka City's subsidiary, Osaka Port Transport System Co., Ltd. (大阪港トランスポートシステム, OTS). The operation of the section was later merged to Osaka City transportation itself to increase the number of passengers by reducing fares previously calculated separately.
A fleet of seven four-car 200 series trainsets was introduced between 2016 and March 2017, all finished in different colour liveries. The first set, 01, entered revenue service on 29 June 2016, followed by the second set, 02, in October 2016.
The 200 series fleet, sets 01 to 07, is formed as follows. The trains have stainless steel bodies.
