great news. thanks for the update.

the station design looks ideal.
however the platforms seem to be too slim. I mean isnt that station right at the azadi square, and right next to the western bus terminal?
that station is most probably going to be highly frequented.

The aero-dynamic model of metro is really modern.

I heard Karaj, the satellite town of Tehran, is planning a light rail system, is it true?

I heard there is an ambitious plant for greatly extending the metro. Beside the current 3 lines, more 5 lines are planned.

1) Will line 1 be extended from Gheitarieh to Tajrish Square and from Haram-e-Mohtahar to Imam Khomeini Airport?
2) Will line 2 be extended from Farhangsara to further east?
3) Will line 4 be extended from Enghelagb Square to Azadi?
4) Will there be a new line 3 from Islamshahr to Lashgarak?
5) Will there be a new line 6 from Bokharaei to Sadeghieh?
6) Will there be a new line 7 from Yousef abad to Takhti Stadium?
7) Will there be a new line 8? What will be the route?
8) Will there be a new line 9? What will be the route?

Sorry Ashis Mitra but most of your questions can't be answered. Frankly Iranians aren't capable of publishing such data in accuracy like you'd see about a London tube station for example. There isn't much interest for metro stats inside Iran anyway.

That's a shame. I really wish the Iranian people would take more interest in learning about and hypothesizing about the future of their metro systems. Such a great nation should take pride in its high-tech transportation networks.

Recently I’ve confused between the metro & suburban train terms in Tehran.

www.subways.net and www.urbanrail.net says that the Karaj line is the suburban rail line, but wikipedia says that it is a metro. I totally get confused.

Which definition is true? Urban rail fans of Tehran please clear this.

My word is single decker vehicles are metro, & double decker vehicles are suburban train. Am I right?

My opinion is –
1) Line 1, 2 & 4 are truly metro, because it run mostly underground, use 3rd rail, and serve within Tehran City with multiple unit rail vehicles.
2) Line 5 is suburban rail, because it run completely on surface, use overhead wire, and serve outside Tehran, connects Tehran with outer suburbs like Karaj with electric loco hauled trains.

yeah, I find that confusing as well, mostly because there is no other example for this kind of approach in the world.
I'll try to explan it.

The Metro line 5 is a commuter rail line. It's a heavy-rail system different to the other Metro lines, but its organized just like the other lines.
This is where the confusion starts:


So is the line 5 of Tehran Metro comparable to other commuter rail services, like the German S-Bahn for instance?

No, the German S-Bahn is a sub-company of German national railways.
Tehran line 5 is managed by the Tehran metro rail company.
This was decided already in the days where the master plan for Tehran metro was laid, in the 1970ies. They just decided for this approach back then.
In modern times where the metro was finally built, they built it in total accordance to the original master plan, and made no segregation between the metro and the commuter lines

So are all kind of railway lines concerning Tehran managed by the Tehran metro rail company?

No, there are other commuter rail lines for Tehran, managed by national railways, for example Tehran main railway station - Parand.
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...397034&page=18

However there are 1-2 new commuter lines planned (in accordance to the metro master plan), that will be part of Tehran metro and organized just like line 5.

Why do they use double-decker trains?

Because they are needed capacity-wise.
The trains of line 5 are very long and have a very high frequency for heavy-rail, and still the demand is so high that they need double-deckers.

Of course single-deckers with a high amount of doors would be more comfortable and efficient.

When line 5 has a high frequency almost like line 2, and the two share the the same continuous track, wouldnt it be easier and more comfortable to have one continuous line?

It would be, but the system the way it is now is justified and right.
Line 5 is the one that leaves Tehran to Karaj, where the distances between the stations become bigger, and a higher speed is needed (rather than high acceleration inside the city), hence the use of heavy rail.

The Teheran Metro coloring scheme has inspired a song called "Black and Yellow" by Wiz Khalifa.

Peculear situation, but the line should be renamed to different name like express metro or fast metro rather than line 5 for clearing confusion.
