Great point about frequency and not needing a designated lane in Valiasr. It would be amazing to free up the landmark street of the whole country from all that clutter. I can't see how the whole length of the avenue could not be designated as historic site and put under preservation orders! I am quite serious, can you imagine all the trees put back in throughout and the sidewalks standardised. The historic and international significance is there 100% and I think there will be a massive public approval for the move. There is a small residents type group that can be hugely encouraged to grow through conservation movements and even holding festivals on the original anniversary of the street opening.....imagination running wild!!What's up with the ugly bus route+destinations band on every single bus? why can't we use the LED screens properly like every other modern system outside of Iran? Then they can reassign bus and have variable routes on stretches with different frequencies and move buses around in different routes based on needs. For example, we can have a line 7-1 from Rahahan to chaharrah valiasr, so that there is a higher frequency of buses in that stretch without crowding northern parts of valiasr that have a lesser need and no khatte vizhe, or a line 1-1 from meydan emam hoseyn through damavand as that section has no metro line 4 and may require more bus services, or all sorts of other combinations.
Would be a great start to see less of all these barriers in all the colours under the sun. I know it saves lives by making them visible and all that but somehow we have to cut the cord*. Iranian road manners are worst then a Neanderthals at a dinner table sadly.
* it's an English expression referring to birth of a baby. It means stop mothering them basically. In case the meaning gets lost in translation. Lol
