The Tokyu 3020 series (東急3020系, Tōkyū 3020-kei) is an electric multiple unit (EMU) commuter train type operated by the private railway operator Tokyu Corporation in Japan for services on the Tokyu Meguro Line. As of September 13, 2021, three trainsets have been built.

Design

The 3020 series trains share a common design with the Tokyu 2020 series and Tokyu 6020 series trains used on the Den-en-toshi Line and Ōimachi Line.[1]

Formation

The trains are operated as six-car sets.[1] They were built as eight-car sets, but two cars per train will be stored until 2022, when platform doors are extended to fit 8-car trains as part of Tokyu Corporation's strategy to cope with high demand on the Meguro Line and for the opening of the Sōtetsu Tōkyū Link Line.[2] All three trainsets are formed as follows:[citation needed]
