History

The station opened on December 30, 1916, initially named simply Funabashi Station (船橋駅).[1] This was renamed Keisei Funabashi from November 18, 1931.[1] The station was elevated from November 2006.[1] From 2006, the station became a stop on the Skyliner limited express train service. When the Skyliner moved to the Narita Sky Access Line in July 2010, Keisei Funabashi became a stop on the replacement Cityliner service between Ueno and Narita Airport (later truncated to Keisei-Narita). Since the timetable revision on December 5, 2015, the station has become a stop on the Morningliner and Eveningliner train services.[2]
