While some locally developed e-payment services such as Phone Pay have been utilized in recent years to make payments in taxis easier, their reach remains limited

The routine squabbles between angry drivers asking for change and passengers who find their billfolds empty of coins might become a thing of the past by the year end.
To remedy one of the main grievances of Tehran’s residents, cabs will be linked to the necessary software for the e-payment of taxi fares before the end of the current Iranian year in March 2019, reported IBENA.
CEO of Tehran Taxi Organization Alireza Qanadan says they are to tap into the potential of the private sector to establish an e-payment system for passengers taking taxis.
Qanadan added, “After holding extensive talks with Tehran City Council, we have decided to enlist the help of the private sector to organize the micropayments in taxis.”
