Tehran metro is the one of the good metro network in Asia, which is growing quickly in recent year. It currently has 4 lines— Line 1, 2, 3 & 4. A dense network in core city area, and also a good extension towards outer area, made it a very good transportation. The network is mostly underground. All lines are connected with each others, which strengthens the entire network. It is a very good example of a strong metro network.

A rare specialty I’ve seen here that they open metro lines completely at first, without much intermediate stations. It is good for one view that traveling between two far away termini quickly being happened, and more areas come under metro service, then gradually intermediate stations opened, checking public pressure. I think it could be a model to the world.

After reading many websites I’ve recently saw some matters, which arise some questions and curiosity. Here I’m writing.

1) Line 1 is planned to extend in the south to Imam Khomeini Airport (with a possible suburban link to Vavan). It will be very good for traveling to Airport quickly. Which branch will be extended—Shahr-e-AFtab of Kahriak? The Vavan link will be longer is not? Will it be a metro extension, or suburban rail line? Has the construction started? Please write some details about this extension with its opening date.

2) Line 2 is planned to extend in the east to connect with a suburban line to Damavand and Pardis. The extension phase to new east terminal is under construction. It will be a very important extension for interchange between metro & train. Has the construction started? Please write some details about this extension with its opening date.

3) Line 3, will be branched on northern Tehran from Nobonyad to connect line 1 at Tajrish. After this extension, it will create an alternative route of line 1 from Tajrish to Shahid Behesti. Although that alternative route will be longer, but if anytime an accident or anything could stop the service of line 1 via Mirdamad, this line 3 could continue the journey. There will be two new stations—Niavaran and Shahid Bahonar. Has the construction started? Please write some details about this extension with its opening date.

4) I don’t understand why the Mehrabad Airport branch of line 4 acts as a separate line. Airport branch operated separately with 3-car trains, but for this reason, airport passengers should change metro cars at Bimeh for continue their journey at city centre. Airport is an important place, so why are they not continuing a same train from Airport to Shahis Kolahdooj directly? It will save time, and will reduce changing harassment. Please explain about this eccentricity.

Another peculiarity is—on all Tehran metro trains the first, the second, and the last carriages are reserved for women who do not wish to ride with men in the same car. Women can still ride other cars freely. I never heard such reservation on any metro system around the world except some Muslim cities like Cairo, Dubai & Tehran. Is there any problem of sexual harassment for women in those cities that they should need separate compartment?

Actually, women-only cars are pretty common in India and Japan as well. Harassment seems to be the main reason for it.

In london too, or maybe they are considering it. In Iran, it is more because of the nature of the regime (religious) than harassment.

In India, there is separate compartment for women in suburban train, but not in metro. I mean METRO

Although I don't know about Japan or England.

However, could anyone answer my questions which I have written before?

In Tehran, like any major city in the world, Sexual harassment does exist and is not un heard of, however, it is by no means a problem and is not the reason for separate women compartment. Despite this women only carriages exist, and many women prefer to ride in these as they feel more comfortable, but if these carriages did not exist, I can assure no problems would exist.

I am not sure which India you were stating but Delhi Metro has a separate coach for women. Last I check Delhi was the capital of India.

Even if the society were ideal, and no harassment existed, the volume the metro serves and the number of cars it has makes being pressed between people and being jerked around at each station is inevitable.
