Fukuoka City Subway
Fukuoka City Subway (福岡市地下鉄, ふくおかしちかてつ, Fukuoka-shi Chikatetsu) - Serves Fukuoka City, Japan. It consists of three subway lines, the Kūkō, or Airport, Line (空港線), the Hakozaki Line (箱崎線) and the Nanakuma Line (七隈線).

The lines are operated by Fukuoka City Transportation Bureau (福岡市交通局, Fukuoka-shi Kōtsūkyoku). Unlike most other public operators in Japan, the bureau only operates subways, without any bus lines.

All the stations of the subway lines are equipped with automatic platform gates. All the lines are automatically operated by ATO system, although a driver does ride a train as a precaution. The lines will introduce a smart card system in spring, 2009, that will succeed the current prepaid magnetic card systems.
