Soaring car prices in Iran have put the brakes on the government’s decades-old taxi renovation policy.
Over the past several months and following unprecedented hikes in car prices, the latest and frustratingly slow taxi renovation scheme announced in 2016 has been put on hold, Head of Iran Taxi Union Morteza Zameni told ISNA.
The government in collaboration with local banks and carmakers offered a taxi renovation plan three years ago dubbed ‘Nosazi’. Flawed in more ways than one, the scheme had some positive results for the men (and some women) in the hard and thankless profession. 
Zameni says, “Local car companies now want to renegotiate prices. Talks have been held between the union and car companies. There will an agreement soon.”
