Business Line[edit]

The Yokohama Municipal Subway lines are line 1, line 3 and 4.

Of these lines 1 and 3, Shonandai station -Azamino station between the two are operated integrally, nicknamed the Blue Line is called.

Also, the 4-line Hiyoshi station -Nakayama station is nicknamed the Green Line. The nickname of the Blue Line and the Green Line has been officially used since March 30, 2008, when the Green Line was opened.

Blue Line

The Blue Line (line 1 and Line 3) is operated as an integral route of 40.4 km between Shonandai station and Azamino station. The total extension 40.4 km is the second-largest subway line, next to the 40.7 km of Tokyo Metropolitan Transportation Bureau (Toei Subway) Oedo Line Japan.

In addition, there is a drawing plan from Azamino station to the shinYuri-Oka station ehicle, all seats were priority seats, but since April 1, 2013, it was no longer a priority seat for all seats, so the "Yuzuriai sheet" was created for each vehicle. As a result, in the vicinity of the Yuzuriai seat, the mobile phone with the power supply is prohibited, and the other seats are set in manner mode like other companies. In the car, "turn off the mobile phone" broadcast is also performed, because the number of announcements is few, and the notice of the car is decreasing than before, it is not completely thorough, and because a lot of passengers were actually using the cell phone in the train,

In July 2011, the "mobile phone power off area" was set up in each vehicle, and it was decided to officially ban the use of mobile phones except for calls outside the area.

Timetable for the operation schedule of the wrapping vehicle is published on the official website of the Transportation Bureau. In the blue line, for the implementation of one-man operation, the operation of the ATO (automatic Train operation device) has been started since January 20, 2007. At the home of the Blue Line station, the installation of the home door was underway and the operation began on September 15, 2007 at all stations. It was originally scheduled to be operated sequentially from Azamino station toward Shonandai station in February, but it was changed to start in April. Conventionally, in the blue line is not carried out the departure instructions by the departure Bell Peek at the first train and Ching, the conductor had to depart by closing the door to blowing the hand whistle, the conductor from the flight will not be by one-man operation, We introduced the full-day operation of the departure sign sound from November 27, 2007.

To clarify the distinction by direction, the departure sign sound depends on the destination. The one-man operation on the Blue Line began on December 15, 2007, which was the 35th anniversary of its opening. The driver monitors the passengers on the passenger's seat and opens and closes the door. By the implementation of a one-man operation, the cost of approximately 9 billion yen, which is a labor cost of 133 conductors, is reduced, and the cost of 100 million yen per year is increased for the maintenance and management of the home door, and the deduction is estimated to reduce expenses by approximately 800 billion yen. On the other hand, the advertisement on the wall of the station was hard to see because of the home door, and the advertisement cancel the advertisement contract one after another, and the new problem of decrease in the advertising revenue also caused it.

In addition, the rapid operation has been started on July 18, 2015.

Green Line.

F The Green Line (line 4) opened on March 30, 2008 at Hiyoshi Station-Zhongshan station, operating distance 13.0 km (total extension distance 13.1 km).

It was originally scheduled to open in 2007. The opening was postponed for one year due to the difficulty of expropriation of land in the vicinity of Hiyoshi honcho from Hiyoshi station to Hiyoshi-Honmachi station, and the agreement of the local right person was not obtained. As for the Green Line, the home door was operated from the time of opening, and the installation rate of the home door was 100% in the Yokohama Municipal Subway along with the Blue Line. In the Green Line, one-man driving and the departure sign sound are introduced at the time of opening. The sound and the departure sign of the home door are the same as the Blue Line and are used.

For details, see "Yokohama Municipal Subway Green Line#stretching plan"

Yokohama Municipal Subway has a plan to build a new route to achieve the Yokohama Ring Railway, the Green Line, which opened in 2008 (line 4) Hiyoshi Station-Zhongshan station, was planned and built as part of the Yokohama Annular Railway. The Yokohama Annular Railway is a C-shaped railway plan that connects to the Yokohama station, which is connected to the Motomachi-Chinatown station via Hiyoshi station, Zhongshan Station, Futamatagawa Station, Higashi-Totsuka station, Kami-Ooka station and Negishi station from Tsurumi station.

Planned abolition Line[edit]

Line 2 Yokohama Municipal Subway Line 2 was planned as a line (11.4 km) from Kanagawa Shin-machi station, Yokohama Station East , Wisteria Town, Yoshino-cho Station and Takigashira-machi to the folding screen. Although it had been considered as a bypass line for the congestion easing of the Keikyu main line in parallel, the need for construction is eliminated after the Keikyu has increased the transport capacity, the plan has been abolished and gaps.

The route was slightly different, but instead planned, was constructed and opened the "Yokohama Expressway Minato Mirai Line" (opening section, Yokohama-Motomachi, Chinatown, Plan section, Motomachi, China Town-Negishi), the alternative route of Line 2.

Line 3 The Yokohama Municipal Subway Line 3 was originally planned as a line connecting Honmoku and Katsuta. Therefore, there is a home of the route to the Honmoku direction which has ended only by the plan in the Kannai station yard. However, in 1975, from the port industry such as the Yokohama Port Union Association and the Yokohama Shipowners ' Association, the subway construction work made the traffic jam more intense and concerned that the transportation from the port was affected, and a petition to postpone the construction was submitted. As a result of the negotiations, the construction started after completion of the Tokyo Metropolitan Expressway Yokohane Line Yamashita Interchange and Yamashita Nagatsuta line . Then, when the MM21 plan was announced in 1981, the current Yokohama high-speed railway Minato Mirai line, the Minato Mirai 21 new line and the area to compete, the construction of the Honmoku direction was frozen, the business license was withdrawn in 1988 and the prospect of opening it was lost. This home is being used as a detention line of the forwarding train now.

Station No. Each station has a train number[edit]

This was the first time the Yokohama Municipal Subway was introduced in the Japan domestic railways to coincide with the holding of the 2002 FIFA World Cup finals in Yokohama City in 2002 and the 30th anniversary of the opening At this time, it was shonandai from the number one station to the 32nd Azamino station. Since the numbers "32" are the same as those in the World Cup, the tournament was set up in one country to support each station during the World Cup. The station number that was introduced at this time was made of only numbers, but the route sign of the alphabet was introduced at the time of the Green Line opening. The Blue line each station has a B, and from the B01 of Shonandai station to the B32 of Azamino station, the Green Line train station is attached to G, and from the g01 of the Zhongshan Sta. At two stations at the Center South Station and center North station where both lines overlap, a different station number is attached to each route.
