The electric trains used by the system have a stoppage time of 60 seconds in each station which will be reduced to 30 seconds gradually. Total transport capacity of line 1 is 640,000 passengers per day. The trains of the western half of the line are each made up of 11 compartments and seven wagons, with a total capacity of 1,290 seated and standing passengers. The maximum speed of the trains is 80 km per hour which will be tempered to an average of 37 km per hour due to stoppages at stations along its route.

The current 5 line system was completed in March 2005, totalling 90 km with 52 stations.

According to Hashemi Bahramani, Chairman & Managing Director of Tehran Urban & Suburban Railway Co., the long-term plans include four more lines and five extensions, which would link the capital to nearby towns. He hopes to put together a public-private partnership under which the municipal authorities would fund the tunnelling, the private sector the stations and national government the mechanical and electrical equipment.
Line 1 would be extended north from Mirdamad to Shariati and south from Haram-e-Motahar to Imam Khomeini Airport, with a suburban feeder continuing to Vavan. Line 2 would continue east from Dardasht to connect with a suburban line to Damavand and Pardis. Line 3 would be extended southwest from Javadieh to Sharyar, and Line 4 from Azadi Square to the domestic airport. Suburban Line 5 would be extended west from Mehrshahr to Hashtgerd.
Line 6 is planned to link Bokharaei in the southeast with Sadeghieh in the northwest, parallelling parts of Lines 1 and 2. Line 7 would loop through the southwest part of the city, connecting Takhti Stadium with Yousef Abad. Line 8 would parallel Line 7, connecting Moshiryeh with Azadi Square via Nazi Abad. Line 9 would also start from Moshiryeh and provide an outer orbital in the northeast sector. Another suburban route would run southeast from Moshiryeh to Varamin.

TEHRAN (IRIB News) -- The first phase of the Middle East biggest terminal for repairing Metro trains was inaugurated Wednesday (6th of July) in an area of 56,000 square meters in south Tehran.
The managing director of Tehran and Suburbs Metro Company Mohsen Hashemi said in the opening ceremony that the first phase had cost 40 billion Rials and some 5 million dollars had been allocated to provide the equipments of this sector.
He expressed hope that the current 80-kilometer Metro line be extended to 90 kilometers by the end of the current Iranian year (ending in Mars 20, 2006).

"We plan to create a subway assembly line in this area to provide the wagons needed in the country."

Terhans Metro



It's impressive that you just build that in 7 years..
The subway is very young and will probably be extended in the future. But as it is today, does it cover the need, did it ease the traffic stock in the citycenter significally? What do you think?

^^ as u said its impressive for what its become in 7 years. The Tehran - Karaj route is very good, and eases traffic slightly in the Bazaar area of Tehran, yet traffic is still really bad, I think part of the problem is single user cars, as in rush hour most of the cars have only one passenger. The bus service needs to be improved significantly imo. Once the metro spans more of Tehran itd be better, closest station to my appt in tehran is at Abbas Abad, i think thatl be the mirdamad station, not sure... i believe theyr doing construction up at Tajrish, which is really far uptown.

I am in aquittance with one engeneer, Irania, who was educated in Czech republic and than went to Iran after 79 till 90´s he struggled with fact, that more than technical priorities corruption and clientelism was more importent and despite fact, they ofered him very high post, he decide to leave this project, so now he was very happy when I told him about progress of Tehran metro.

I dont think so... Tehran will never have normal traffic i think (only when they start taking away the road lines and starting replacing them with metro, light rail lines... Just like they are doing now in Belgium

ye i mean it could have helped the traffic a lot. another way of solving traffic is to built more shahraks such as shahrgerd and building more freeways.

yeah it could but building more freeways isnt the way to solve the problem. People need to start thinking differently and people should start prefering the sub way over the road, and the only way of doing that is making the sub way really atractive and the roads really un atractive

^^ tehrans problems will eventually sort themselves out, like Persian said, they need to promote the suburbs, get ppl out of the city centre. ppl will eventually start to do this because tehran is getting more polouted every year, so the suburbs will have a better quality of life, i even got a chest infection over xmass when i was in tehran :S but yeh we learnt in A-level geography that naturally people will start moving out to suburbs :p
