Tehran Metro
Tehran Metro
Tehran's new metro system is comprised of three lines that will whisk you quickly from one end of the city to the other without having to deal with the noise, pollution and chaos of Tehrani traffic. However, many residents decided to leave their cars and commute by metro, so expect huge crowds during rush hours. There are four lines (numbered strangely 1, 2, 4 and 5) but the two most useful are lines 1 (north to south- currently from to ) and 2 (east to west) which connect at the central . All stations have signs in both Persian and English. Trains run every 10 minutes or less on rush hours (15 minutes on Fridays and holidays) from around 5:30AM until 11PM every day. Tickets are valid for 1, 2 or 10 trips (including change of lines) and cost 2500, 4500 and 14000 IRR respectively. There are ticket booths at every station. You can also buy a contactless fare card which is the best option if you are going to use metro a lot, or simply want to have less hassle by paying 20,000 IRR for a card and use it on both metro and some city buses (note that if you use this card, you usually pay less than any other tickets, since they charge for the longest trip on the network). There are two dedicated women-only carriages at one end of the train. Women can anyway choose to travel aboard the other carriages.
