Inexpensive Loans to Revamp Rusty Taxi Vans in Tehran

In an effort to mitigate air pollution in the capital, several organizations have mobilized resources to launch a renovation scheme directed at renewing Tehran’s taxi van fleet. 
There are more than 7,000 taxi vans on the verge of falling apart in the capital, according to the director of Tehran Taxi Organization Alireza Qanadan.
The government’s taxi van renovation scheme began in late February with the aim of revamping the metropolis’ fleet, reported Students News Network.
The scheme follows the same outlines as another program dubbed “Nosazi”—which means renovation in Persian—introduced by the government in 2016 in collaboration with local banks and carmakers to send old cabs to the junkyard in exchange for a new vehicle.
The scheme, now targeting dilapidated vans, grants long-term in expensive loans to taxi drivers to give impetus to a process to salvage public transportation fleet and curb the suffocating air pollution Tehran is grappling with.
