Between 6 million and 8 million trips are taken to and from cities to suburban areas in Iran every day, of which only 17,000 are by rail. This means the suburban rail system accounts for only around 0.2-0.3% of the suburban passenger transportation, Mir Hassan Mousavi, deputy for passenger affairs with the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways, said.
Mousavi added that Tehran Province accounts for 2.4 million suburban travels per day, around 10,000 of which are made via railroads, the news portal of the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development reported.
