Tokyo Monorail Haneda Airport Line

Tokyo Monorail Haneda Airport Line(Tokyo Monorail Hanedakukousen)[2][3]It is,TokyoMinato-ku OfMonorail Hamamatsucho StationからOta-ku OfHaneda Airport Terminal 2 StationTie up,Tokyo Monorail OfmonorailIt is a route.The company name is attached to the route name[2].Station numberingThe route code used inMO..Old nameTokyo Monorail Haneda Line[2]..simply"Tokyo Monorail","Tokyo Monorail LineIs often called.

Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and TourismSupervision "Railway handbook], The starting point is Haneda Airport Terminal 2 Station and the ending point is Monorail Hamamatsucho Station, but in terms of guidance and train operation, the direction of Haneda Airport Terminal 2 is down and the direction of Monorail Hamamatsucho is up. , In this section as well, the description starts from Hamamatsucho Monorail Station.


TokyoCity centerとTokyo International AirportConnect (Haneda Airport)Access routeAs a result, the monorail Hamamatsucho-Haneda Airport Terminal 2 is connected in about 23 minutes by regular train and about 18 minutes by the airport rapid train "Airport Rapid".

1964autumn'sTokyo OlympicsWas built with the aim of improving access to the city center for Haneda Airport passengers from Japan and overseas.May 10Before the opening ceremony of the Tokyo OlympicsMay 9Opened in[4].

This line isStraddle type monorailSo, it is the only existing route in JapanAlweg styleThe maximum operating speed of 80 km / h is the fastest monorail in Japan.Most of the lines are elevated, but between Showajima and Seibo (between maintenance sites)Ebitori RiverTunnel), near Tenkubashi Station and Shin-Seibijō-Haneda Airport Terminal 2 is an underground line.Passengers at Haneda AirportTerminal buildingWhen the route was extended due to the relocation, the construction cost increased due to the structurally large cross-sectional area of ​​the tunnel, and the fare also increased.1993Comparing the fares before and after the extension of Haneda Airport in September, general airport users have increased the boarding distance, so1991At the end of the day, the monorail Hamamatsucho-(former) Haneda (13.0km) was 300 yen, but1994As of August, the distance between Monorail Hamamatsucho and Haneda Airport (currently Haneda Airport Terminal 8) (1km) was 16.9 yen.However, for the first ride, 460 yen is 90 yen, and if you compare the same distance, for example, 110km between Monorail Hamamatsucho and Haneda Maintenance Center (currently the maintenance site), 11.8 yen is 300 yen, and 340 yen for the same distance. Only 20 yen price increase[5].

The vehicle has been in operation since its openingHitachi, Ltd.I am using a manufactured one.In the past, the pace of replacement was as fast as 13 years after the new construction,Keikyu CorporationInvestment in vehicles has been restrained since it became a competitive situation with.

Tracks are often built on canals, so boats, etc. on piersShipMay be moored[Annotation 1], There is a note on the pier that says "No piers".When driving on a road bridge, there is a note on the pier or overpass that "oil may fall".Also,2011May 2There is a problem that it is difficult to rescue passengers when a train gets stuck in this section because there is a track on the canal when the operation is stopped for a long time due to a substation trouble that occurred in It became a relief.In addition, the same yearMay 3 OfGreat East Japan EarthquakeAt the time of occurrence(I.e.Because there is a danger of reaching (Tokyo BayIn the whole areaTsunami warningIt took a long time to resume operation because the safety of the section on the canal could not be confirmed until the warning was cleared.After that, as a countermeasureKawasaki Heavy IndustriesDeveloped byNickel/hydrogen storage battery"Gigacell" is installed in the substation so that it can be operated to the nearest station with the stored power even in the event of a power outage.[6].

Operation form

Current train type

As of 2021, the following four types of trains (three regular types and one temporary type) are in operation on the Tokyo Monorail Haneda Airport Line.This is the only monorail line in Japan that operates regular trains with transit stations.

Regular train type

■Airport Rapid (Haneda Express)
Monorail Hamamatsucho Station-The fastest type that connects Haneda Airport Terminal 2 Station in about 18 minutes.2007May 3のダイヤ改正より、従来の快速に代わる形で臨時快速・区間快速とともに運行開始した。停車駅はモノレール浜松町駅・羽田空港第3ターミナル駅・羽田空港第1ターミナル駅・羽田空港第2ターミナル駅の4駅のみで、浜松町と羽田空港を結ぶ役割に徹している。ほぼすべての列車が昭和島駅で普通列車を追い抜く。
■Section Rapid
モノレール浜松町駅 - 羽田空港第2ターミナル駅間を約21分で結ぶ種別。2007年3月18日のダイヤ改正より、従来の快速に代わる形で空港快速・臨時快速とともに運行開始した。停車駅はモノレール浜松町駅・天王洲アイル駅・大井競馬場前駅・流通センター駅・羽田空港第3ターミナル駅・羽田空港第1ターミナル駅・羽田空港第2ターミナル駅の7駅。浜松町と羽田空港を結ぶ役割に加え、Tennozu Isle(And connectRinkai lineThroughTokyo waterfront subcenterToward)Oi RacecourseIt is also responsible for transportation to such leisure spots.It will not overtake the preceding ordinary train, nor will it be overtaken by the following airport rapid train.
However, I have overtaken a regular train with a special timetable. March 2011, 3 was a weekday (Tuesday),Electricity crisis caused by the Great East Japan EarthquakeBecause ofTEPCOof"Planned power outageIt was driven on Saturdays and holidays.At that time, the train bound for Haneda Airport in the morning was operated by changing the airport rapid train to the section rapid train in consideration of the large number of passengers getting off at both Tennozu Isle and Distribution Center stations.Along with this, the section rapid train, which normally does not overtake ordinary trains, was operated at Showajima Station with a timetable that overtakes ordinary trains.
■Normal (Local)
Monorail Hamamatsucho Station-A type that connects Haneda Airport Terminal 2 Station in about 24 minutes (without waiting for passage).Stop at all stations.During the day, all trains wait for the airport rapid train to pass at Showajima Station.The number is small during the day, but in the morning and weekday eveningsAt rush hourThe number of regular trains is large because the number of airport rapid trains and section rapid trains is small.
1992May 6Until then, there were also regular trains that passed through Showajima Station.
Almost all trains run through the monorail Hamamatsucho Station-Haneda Airport Terminal 2 Station, but at Showajima StationGarageDue to this, there are several section-operated trains from the distribution center to Hamamatsucho in the early morning and evening, and from Hamamatsucho to Showajima in the middle of the night.

Temporary train type

■臨時快速 (Special Rapid)
モノレール浜松町駅 - 羽田空港第2ターミナル駅間を約19分で結ぶ種別。2007年3月18日のダイヤ改正より、従来の快速に代わる形で空港快速・区間快速とともに運行開始した。停車駅はモノレール浜松町駅・天王洲アイル駅・羽田空港第3ターミナル駅・羽田空港第1ターミナル駅・羽田空港第2ターミナル駅の5駅である。
Every yearMay 1Early morning from Haneda Airport to first sunrise flight passengers and observation deckFirst sunriseを鑑賞する旅客を輸送する目的で運転される臨時列車。2007年1月1日運転分は快速扱い、2008年1月1日運転分以降は空港快速または臨時快速扱いで運転される。駅の案内表示では空港快速だが、車両行先表示や車内自動放送は臨時快速運転に対応している。
2020年1月1日運転分では3本(下り2本・上り1本)とも空港快速扱いでの運転になり[8], The train that stopped at Tennozu Isle Station, which had only one downhill train, has disappeared.

Past train type

Monorail Hamamatsucho Station-A type that connects Haneda Airport Terminal 2 Station (currently Haneda Airport Terminal 2 Station) in about 19 minutes.2001May 12Start of operation.Initially, only one last train (Haneda Airport Station <currently Haneda Airport Terminal 1 Station> bound for Hamamatsucho Monorail at 1:23) was operated, and there was no stop on the way.
2002May 7から臨時列車として下り初電1本(モノレール浜松町駅5時00分発羽田空港駅行き)が運転された。
2003May 7から下りでも定期列車として運行されるようになった。
2004May 8から終日運行されるようになり、この時から途中停車駅に天王洲アイル駅が追加された。

The operating company, Tokyo Monorail, was established in 1959 by Daiwa Kanko Co., Ltd.[Annotation 2]Was established as.at firstShimbashi StationThe Japanese elevated railway, which was renamed from Yamato Tourism, is planned to start from1961(36)May 12I have a license between Haneda and Shimbashi, but I have no idea how to secure the land, so I have to go to Hamamatsucho Station.TerminalIs trying[11]..With the shortening of the construction section, a license between Hamamatsucho and Shimbashi was granted.1966(41)May 1Has expired[12].

In addition,1964 Tokyo OlympicsNo need to acquire land in timeKeihin CanalMany sections will be built on the top of the building, but due to the overnight rush work, a large amount of construction cost was required, which hindered the subsequent management.

At the beginning of the opening in 1964 (Showa 39), there were no stations on the way, so there were no passengers other than airport passengers.Also,national railroadThe first ride is 20 yen,Midsize taxiThe first ride is 100 yen,weekly magazineWas 50 yen at that timeFareWas expensive at 250 yen for one way and 450 yen for round trip.yetPassenger planeUse andTravelingHowever, the occupancy rate remained in the 20% range, partly because it was not common.At one time, there are only about 1 users per day, and at night, the inside of the car is turned off in some sections.Night viewSo that you can enjoyA dateIt was said that it was a course[13].

Therefore, in 1966 (Showa 41), the fare was drastically reduced by 40%, and a special discount ticket was issued for airport visitors as a measure to attract passengers.Also,Oi RacecourseAnd existed at that timeOi Auto Race Ground"Oikeibajo-mae Station" for access to and "Haneda Seibo Station" for airport personnel and new stations were set up one after another, but the number of passengers did not increase sufficiently and they participated in the management.Nagoya RailwayWithdrew from the company by raising its capital early, and Hitachi could not recover the vehicle manufacturing costs, and was in danger of bankruptcy.

Hitachi Group newly invested as a drastic support measure,1967To Tokyo Monorail in (Showa 42)Hitachi TransportAnd Western Hitachi Transport Co., Ltd. merged and changed the company name to "Hitachi Transport Tokyo Monorail Co., Ltd." to rebuild the company.

After that, the number of airport passengers increased with the expansion of international and domestic air routes.Shuto ExpresswayIn the traffic jamTransit BusPassengers gradually increased from the image that it was faster than taxis and taxis.1970 eraIn the middle of the year, it became established as an access route to Haneda Airport.Management has also picked up,1981The company name was changed to "Tokyo Monorail Co., Ltd." with 100% investment by Hitachi Transport Co., Ltd.Hitachi logisticsThe management was inherited.

Construction of the new terminal began when Haneda Airport began its offshore business, at which time Tokyo Monorail devised a route to the new terminal.A plan to lay a straight route from the old Haneda station or a short-circuit route from the vicinity of Showajima station was also considered, but in the end, it was decided to go through the south side of the airport site.

1998(Heisei(10 years), until then, I hadn't entered the airport directly to a position outside the airport, and it was hardly functioning as an access route.Keikyu Corporation(Keikyu)Airport lineCame into the airport.further,Keisei Electric Railway,Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Transportation5 company stations (at that time)Mutual accessBy doing with Haneda AirportChibaConnecting the direction, Haneda- NaritaDirect contact limited express betweenAirport special features) Has also started operation.Therefore, even though it is connected to the JR line in Hamamatsucho, it may be slightly inferior to the network when viewed over a wide area, and it has changed from the "only orbital public transportation to Haneda Airport" that has continued for a long time since its opening. , Was exposed to fierce competition.1997The number of transport personnel, which reached a maximum of 9 million in (6,500), decreased by 3% after entering Keikyu.

It was necessary to increase the number of aircraft in order to respond to the increase in aircraft departing from and arriving at Haneda and to compete with Keihin Electric Express Railway, but the bottleneck wasSingle lineConstruction(Head-end homeReconstruction was urgently needed at Hamamatsucho Station on 2 sides and 1 line.Tokyo Monorail and its parent company, Hitachi Group, were hesitant because they needed a large investment, but they had a long-standing intention to enter Haneda Airport Access.East Japan Railway(JR East) agrees with the idea, and the operating company Hitachi Transport System2001In 13, 70% of the shares were transferred and the management rights of Tokyo Monorail were transferred to JR East.In addition, Hitachi has acquired a 30% stake in order to develop the passenger business such as monorail production, sales and services.

2002JR East, which made Tokyo Monorail a subsidiary in (14), took measures for improvement one after another.First, set up a new ticket gate "Monorail Exit" where you can transfer directly from the JR concourse at Hamamatsucho Station (the reverse is not possible → will be possible later).Keihin Tohoku LineI tried to stop the rapid train at Hamamatsucho station.In addition, the IC card ticket "SuicaWas introduced, and Tokyo Monorail issued and started operation of "Monorail Suica", making Suica available at all stations.furtherSpecial plan ticket"From Haneda Airport StationTokyo Yamanote LineCheap tickets to each station (monorail & Yamanote line discount ticket) are on sale ""Holiday pass(Currently: Holiday Outing Pass) increased by 260 yenTokyo Rinkai High Speed ​​Rail Rinkai LineWe changed it so that we could get on with it.

Future plans

Hamamatsucho station expansion

In June 2009, the Tokyo Monorail reported to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of the development plan for Hamamatsucho Station, which is a terminal in the city center.The current station facility, which has a single track (single track) structure that has remained unchanged for 6 years since its opening, will be improved to two platforms and two tracks (double track).The estimated project cost is about 45 billion yen, and it is estimated that it will take about six and a half years from the local consultation to the design and the completion of the construction.As a result, the maximum number of trains per hour is planned to be increased from the current 1 to 2.At the same time, the structure will correspond to the extension of Shinbashi, which will be described later.Initially, it was considered to move to the east side of the JR line, but due to cost reasons, it was limited to the expansion of the station at the current location.There is a plan to build a new station building at the north exit of JR East at the initial relocation destination.

そ し て,2012July, Inc.World trade center building, Tokyo Monorail, and JR East announced that they have proposed a city plan for "Hamamatsucho 3-chome 4 district" to Tokyo.[30]..According to this, JR / monorail station improvement, maintenance of vertical movement line (station core) connecting JR / monorail and subway, bus terminal, taxi pool, city planning parking lot and cargo handling / motorcycle parking There are plans to improve the parking lot, but there is no specific description about the double line of the monorail track.2013May 2According to the report, at the February president's regular meeting of JR East, it is planning to reconstruct the entire station for JR and monorail in line with the development around the west exit of Hamamatsucho Station, including the rebuilding of the World Trade Center. Revealed. "The number of station users has increased due to the development of the surrounding coastal area, and it has become a little cramped. In order to improve convenience and increase the value of the station, I would like to take this opportunity to rebuild both stations with new ones." showed that.As of April of the same year, the boring survey has begun. The 2 monorail station expansion plan was based on the assumption that the World Trade Center would continue to exist, but the building itself was rebuilt, forcing a change in the plan.

In January 2002, the parent company JR East decided to take the Tokyo Monorail from Hamamatsucho (new station) as a long-term plan.Shimbashi StationAnnounced plans to extend toNihon Keizai ShimbunIt was published in.Regarding the land acquisition problem of the line, there is a prospect by using the sky above the JR line.However, it has not been clarified about the location of Shimbashi Station, let alone the route on the way, and whether to set up a station on the way.The station site isYurikamomeCandidates are near Shimbashi station.In addition, the extension work to Shimbashi is scheduled to start after the construction of Haneda Airport International Terminal Station (currently Haneda Airport Terminal 3 Station) and the expansion work of Hamamatsucho Station are completed.[31].

In September 2010, Shimbashi Station orTokyo StationIt has entered into a full-scale study to extend toTokyo NewspaperReports.The reason why the extension was considered is that the routes that connect to Hamamatsucho Station are limited, and if you move from Narita Airport to Haneda Airport using JR and Tokyo Monorail, you need to change trains twice, so there are competitions. It is inferior to the transportation system of.If you extend to Tokyo StationNarita ExpressBy changing the station to the Narita Express stop even when the Shimbashi station is extended, you only need to change once in either case, and the travel time will be shortened.If it is extended to Tokyo Station, it will cost more than 1 billion yen, and in the case of Shimbashi Station, the cost excluding station construction will be 1,000/1, and the construction period can be completed in a few years at the earliest.[32][33].

In February 2013, at a regular press conference by the president of JR East, it was revealed that the entire station was planned to be renovated for JR and the monorail in line with the development around the west exit of Hamamatsucho Station. Regarding the extension plan to the station, he said that it would be difficult to commercialize it at this point from the viewpoint of construction period and cost.However, we would like to continue to consider it.

On the other hand, in November 2013, JR EastTamachi StationIs closed fromTokaido Freight LineRailway line to Haneda Airport (Haneda Airport Access Line) Was reported to have begun to be considered for maintenance.[34].. In August 2014, JR East was released by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.Transportation Policy CouncilAccording to the plan revealed by the subcommittee on the future of urban railways in the Greater Tokyo Area, near Tamachi StationTokaido Main Line-Ueno Tokyo Line"Higashiyamate route",Oimachi StationRinkai Line in the vicinitySaikyo Line"Nishiyamate route",Tokyo Teleport StationIt is said that it will build three routes, the "seaside route" to get on the Rinkai Line.[35].

2014 Year of 1 MonthSankei ShimbunAccording to the interview, the president of JR EastTetsuro Tomita"It will be an important route for the Japanese economy and the city of Tokyo."[36]..In addition, Tomita has indicated that he intends to keep the competing Tokyo Monorail alive even after the opening of the new line.[36].

On the other hand, the Tokyo Monorail will make it easier to transfer to the JR Yamanote Line and the Oedo Subway Line in line with the ongoing redevelopment of the area around Hamamatsucho Station, and in January 2014,Mainichi NewspapersIn an interview, Hiroyuki Nakamura, president of Tokyo Monorail, stated that he had a dream of extending the monorail to Tokyo Station in the future and that he could see the possibility of 24-hour operation.[37][38].

Keikyu made a full-scale entry into the railway between central Tokyo and Haneda Airport in 1998, and the average number of passengers a day on the monorail was about 1, and Keikyu was about 6. Are[37]..If the new JR line is realized here, a fierce three-way battle will be developed.[37].

2015May 3 OfUeno Tokyo LineAt the opening,Utsunomiya Line-Takasaki Line-Joban LineHowever, after passing Hamamatsucho Station, which is the connecting station of the Tokyo Monorail, it is the connecting station of Keikyu.Shinagawa StationIt is expected that Keikyu will have an even greater advantage in terms of rail access to Haneda Airport.[39]. further,2019In October, Keikyu reduced the additional fare for the Keikyu Airport Line by up to 10 yen, which is a big difference from Keikyu in the regular fare.On the other hand, Tokyo Monorail has a strategy to capture the commuting demand of airport personnel by lowering the regular fare, using the frequency of operation and the regular fare cheaper than Keikyu as weapons.[40].
