The Tokyo Metro 02 series (東京地下鉄02系, Tōkyō Chikatetsu 02-kei) is an electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated since 1988 by Tokyo Metro on the Tokyo Metro Marunouchi Line subway in Tokyo, Japan. Its design is based on the Tokyo Metro 01 series.


A total of 336 cars were introduced into service from 17 October 1988 in 8 batches. 53 six-car trainsets (batches 1 to 7) operate on the main section of the Marunouchi Line, while the Hōnanchō branch uses six three-car trainsets (batch 8).

All refurbished trains have a pink interior and some LCD passenger information screens above all doors.


The first trains entered service from 17 October 1988.

In March 1998, Automatic Train Control was introduced on the 02 series, which was supplemented with a Train Automatic Stopping Controller (TASC) system allowing them to stop automatically at stations since November 2002.


Refurbished set 02-102 near Korakuen Station in March 2010

The 02 series fleet is undergoing major refurbishment, with the first treated trains returning to service from February 2010. Refurbishment includes the use of new Toshiba PMSM (permanent magnet synchronous motors), as fitted to the new Chiyoda Line 16000 series trains, offering energy savings of approximately 10%.[2] Internally, pairs of 17-inch LCD passenger information monitors are installed above the passenger doors. The interior is finished in a pale salmon pink colour reminiscent of the original 300 series trains used on the line, and externally, a white "sine wave" design has been added to the red bodyside stripes, again reminiscent of the 300 series livery.[3]


A fleet of 53 new six-car trains is scheduled to be introduced from fiscal 2018, replacing the 02 series trains by fiscal 2022.[4] The new trains are classified as Tokyo Metro 2000 series.[citation needed]
