Nice system! Clean and aesthetically pleasant.

Architecture is interesting, perhaps a little too uniformly boxy to my taste, but if this is what Iranians want, let it be, whatever. I would also prefer higher ceilings, more vertically spacious stations.

Are there metro systems in other Iranian cities?

The are two other cities with a metro system; mashad and isfahan both cities have about 2 million inhabitants. Shiraz is also getting a network this city has a little less than one and a half million inhabitants

Prez Ahmedenijad a monorail fan.

Iran President is monorail fan (1/19/06)
TMS Exclusive!
Tehran, Iran. The Monorail Society (TMS) has reported on Tehran’s interest in implementing a monorail system, but only recently we found out who has been the driving force behind this proposal. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Iran’s controversial President happens to be a monorailist. Ahmadihejad’s first claim to fame was his leadership participation in the 444-day U.S. Embassy hostage crisis in 1979-1980. Achieving more conventional accomplishments later, he was a student at Iran University of Science and Technology in the field of civil engineering and in 1987 got his doctorate in the field of engineering and traffic transportation planning. He then served as an assistant professor at the Iran University of Science and Technology. He was Mayor of Tehran from 2003 to 2005, where he initiated efforts for a monorail system. Project leaders have contacted TMS on several occasions requesting detailed technical information. Recently we have learned that Tehran Monorail planners continue to seek technical information to help them develop their own system, based on various existing straddle-beam technologies. Ahmadinejad, while he was mayor, said that Tehran eventually needs 400 kilometers of monorail and that the technology is one of the most modern modes of transit.

Yep, Iran is far more developed than we are made to believe. Over 50% of the university graduates is female ...

The Imam Khomeiny station looks gorgeous. I'll go and try to find more photos of that.

Tehran Will Press Ahead With Monorail Project

TEHRAN, Dec. 12--A senior government official has said that the Interior Ministry will follow up the issue of financing Tehran monorail project after the capital city’s municipality apparently insisted on using the funds for developing the overcrowded metropolis’s underground.

The monorail project would require millions of dollars in domestic and foreign finance to connect Mehrabad International Airport to a nearby square.

According to the Persian daily Iran, Seyyed Mehdi Hashemi, deputy interior minister for development affairs, told reporters that Tehran Municipality apparently has not taken ’any serious’ action on the project.

“(Tehran) municipality officials should be held accountable for the failure to attract (foreign) finance for the project,“ he said, adding that the Interior Ministry has announced that it is ready to deal with the issue.

He said that some officials prefer cash investments rather than finance in major projects, stressing that the municipality will be delegated the task of implementing the monorail project on the basis of its capacities, capabilities and readiness to handle the job.

“We will definitely reach an agreement with Tehran Municipality. Otherwise, there will be some other options,“ he said.

Anxious to see more shots.

I'm assuming the Imam-Khomeini station is older than the Imam-Hosein station, which looks very modern and quite opulent.

nice. these PT projects are the right way to spend tax dollars. on a side note, even if you removed the persian artwork and photographed completely a completely empty subway station; i still would go away with a vague sense of persian aesthetics. maybe the repeating geometry of the ceiling and the green color allude to it? at any rate, it adds some flavor to the usual sterility of contemporary PT architecture.

I think that Imam Khomeni is just decorated in a rather old-fashioned style. Lines 1 and 2 both opened in 2000 (Imam Hossein is on line 2, while Imam Khomeni is the interchange station between the two lines). However, planning for the metro began during the 1970s, so some of the architecture and decoration might have been inherited from older designs. (The suburban line 5 opened in 1999, so it's not exactly old either.)
