History[edit]

Ōe Station was opened on May 10, 1917 as a station on the Aichi Electric Railway Company. The Aichi Electric Railway became part of the Meitetsu group on August 1, 1935. Express train service was discontinued from 1990. Later that year, a spur line to Nagoya Port, the Meitetsu Chikkō Line began operations. A new station building was completed in December 2004, at which time the Tranpass system of magnetic fare cards with automatic turnstiles was implemented. Express train services resumed from 2005. The platforms for the Chikkō Line were extended in 2010.
