HistoryEdit

The station opened on April 15, 1913 when Keiō Electric Railway opened its first section between Sasazuka and Chōfu as an Interurban.[3]

Recent developmentEdit

Until 2012, Chofu Station was on the ground level and had busy grade crossings at either end for road traffic, while trains arriving from the Keio Sagamihara Line blocked both lines of the Keio Line as they enter the station. Keio Corporation resolved both these issues by grade separation of railway lines around the station area. Underground tracks opened on August 19, 2012.[4]

Passenger statisticsEdit

In fiscal 2019, the station was used by an average of 130,065 passengers daily.[5]

The passenger figures (boarding passengers only) for previous years are as shown below.
