Shared ones are called "Taxi" and the other ones "Agency". Also, there are two online apps to get taxi. SNAPP and TAPSI are used in Tehran. Please note that you must have a local SIM card to use these apps.

Subway: The Tehran Metro is one of the fastest, most cost-effective modes of transport in the city. The metro system operates from 5:30 to 22:30 every day. However, depending on the day and time, the trains arrive at intervals ranging from 3 to 10 minutes.


Important notes:

  • The first and last cars of each subway are intended for women only. However, this is not to say that the rest of the cars are for men only; women can use any car they choose.
  • Vendors have become a part of the subway ecosystem. Men and women of all ages walk through trains carrying bags of cheap goods hoping to make a sale. Sometimes they sell things you might need, such as a pack of tissue or gum.
