A dense network of train, subway and bus lines, which are operated by about a dozen different companies, covers Tokyo. The train lines operated by JR East and the subway lines are most convenient for moving around central Tokyo.
Tokyo's most prominent train line is the JR Yamanote Line. Most of the many suburban train lines commence at one of the six major stations of the Yamanote Line (Tokyo, Ueno, Ikebukuro, Shinjuku, Shibuya and Shinagawa).
Tokyo's major railway stations and the five JR lines that are most relevant to people who travel within central Tokyo are:

Chuo Line (Rapid)
