Operated by Tokyo Tama Intercity Monorail Co., Ltd., the double tracked, 16.0 km monorail line carries passengers between the suburban cities of Higashiyamato and Tama via Tachikawa, Hino, and Hachiōji in 36 minutes. The first section, from Kamikitadai to Tachikawa-Kita, opened in 1998, with the second section to Tama-Center opened in 2000. Large deficits from construction have caused the corporation to become insolvent.
Tachikawa-Kita, Tachikawa-Minami, and Tama-Center stations are the most important stations, enabling transfer at Tachikawa to JR East's Chūō Main Line and at Tama-Center to the Odakyu Tama Line and Keio Sagamihara Line.
All stations located in Tokyo. Most stations have an associated shape/image (as seen in the left-most column of the table below).

- According to the official settlement report on March 31, 2006, its assets total ¥20.5 billion, while its accumulated income (or rather, liability) is -¥22.8 billion, meaning the latter exceeds the former by ¥2.2 billion. In other words, the company is in insolvency. This does not mean, however, the company is already bankrupt.
