The Tama Toshi Monorail Line (多摩都市モノレール線, Tamatoshi Monorēru-sen), also referred to as the Tama Monorail, is a monorail system in Western Tokyo.

Operated by the Tokyo Tama Intercity Monorail Co., Ltd., the double tracked, 16.0 km monorail line carries passengers between the suburban cities of Higashiyamato and Tama via Tachikawa, Hino, and Hachiōji in 36 minutes. The first section, from Kamikitadai to Tachikawa-Kita, opened in 1998, with the second section to Tama-Center opened in 2000.

Tachikawa-Kita, Tachikawa-Minami, and Tama-Center stations are the most important stations, enabling transfer at Tachikawa to JR East's Chūō Main Line and at Tama-Center to the Odakyu Tama Line and Keio Sagamihara Line.
