I agree, the commuter lines should have another numbering.

I dislike the numbering of Tehran metro in general.
they are following the same numbering as set in the original master-plan, where nothing was built yet.

Also this numbering leaves no room for numbering turnouts potentially to be built.
For example if they build a turnout for line 4, they have to call it something like "4a" or "44" rather than "5"

I dont think its a big problem. I think this would be better for turnouts than an unrelated different number. Would be nicer with named lines like in London. Anyway it leaves the option in future for these lines to be named after people etc.

I am wondering if perhaps these trains were ordered for another city like Tabriz, Shiraz or Isfahan and because the system is ages away from being finished they are being put to use in Tehran. I am thinking this because they are not more modern than the trains already on the system but are a different design and paint scheme while the existing Tehran type is still being produced and delivered.

Does anyone have news when it will open up other stations along the line 4? In a media information appeared that the first section of Line 3 will open this year - if anyone can give information

If the system was opened only in 1999 why does a lot of it look so old-fashioned? The station architecture looks like it was designed in the late 70ties mixed with a shopping mall from the 80ties.

The metro looks like it was designed in the 1970s and 1980s because it was. Construction began in 1978 but was suspended in 1982 because of the Iran-Iraq War. Work resumed in 1985 but proceeded slowly because the war was still going on (it ended in 1988).

Yes some station's design will date from the seventies, eighties and nineties (some of the nineties design ones are really nice) but the ones that are opening at the moment are pretty upto date.
90s:

2000s

Just opened:

Kahrizak new station is the most beautiful station until the subway in Tehran. I am glad that began to build and island platform stations, because it is much more convenient than the side platforms. New I love trains.
Congratulations

I wonder what could be wrong with the third situation. I've never seen such a sign nowhere before.

Does Iran have women-only train cars for the same reason that Japan does?

One carriage at each end for ladies only. All carriages inbetween mixed.

Yes I think so because the trains are soo packed at peak times and some women are very uncomfortable squashed up against men.

Its not entirely for religious reasons (its not just muslim women who dont like strange mens meat and balls squashed against their ass). On intercity transport there is no real segregation (except I think sleeper trains where people travelling alone will not share a compartment with the other sex). Its only public transport where there may be a crush. If its half empty many women wont bother which carriage they use.

What happens if a man got caught riding the women only train? Fine? Jail time?
