JR Central to Expand TOICA Card Usage Area – Including the Minobu Line from Kofu to Shiojiri Stations

JR Central Kokubo Station

JR Central is set to expand the usage area for its TOICA transportation IC card in 2025.

The expansion will include the Tokaido Main Line at Arao and Mino-Akasaka stations and the Iida Line from Mikawa-Ichinomiya to Hon-Nagashino stations in the spring of 2025, and the Minobu Line from Shiojiri to Kofu stations in the autumn of that year. A total of 29 new stations will be introduced.

Passengers who are not traveling within a regular-season ticket area will need to purchase a ticket beforehand as one cannot take rides that cross from within the TOICA usage area to outside of it. The section of the Minobu Line between Nishi-Fujinomiya and Shiojiri stations will not be included in the TOICA area.
