Train Information

The trains that run on the Chuo-Sobu Line are differentiated by color: yellow is local and referred to as "Sobu Line," and orange is Rapid and referred to as "Chuo Line."

The Chuo-Sobu line's official name is Chuo-Sobu Kanko Sen, "slow-moving Chuo-Sobu line." That's because it provides stations on those two lines with a local (every-station) service in the form of the yellow (Sobu) line, while the orange (Chuo) line provides the express service.
