About Tehran Metro

The Tehran Metro is a rapid transit system serving Tehran, the capital of Iran. The system consists of 4 operational lines, with construction having begun on a further two lines in 2007.

The line uses standard gauge and is partly sub-terrain. Ticket price is 1200 IRR for each journey (about USD 0.10), regardless of the distance travelled. Seniors may travel for free on the metro. On all Tehran metro trains, the first and half of the second and last and half of the next-to-last carriages are reserved for women who do not wish to ride with men in the same car. However, women can still ride other cars freely.

The Tehran Metro carries more than 2 million passengers a day. In 2010, 459 million trips were made on Tehran Metro.
