Reign of Yellow Cabs at Iranian Airports Coming to an End

The days of unchallenged dominance of yellow taxis at Iranian airports are set to end, as ride-hailing companies are now permitted to offer services at airports. 
After months of contention over the operation of online taxi services at airports that has been a strong bastion of the yellow cabs, the Roads Ministry ended the fracas by giving the green light to ride-hailing companies.
The ministry has issued a new guideline, based on which ride-hailing companies are now allowed to operate at airports but the drivers and their fleets must keep 400 to 800 meters away from the taxi stands, reported ISNA.
Prior to this, drivers with e-hailing companies offered services at airports but no rules governed their activities, which resulted in heated altercations between them and the airport cabbies.
