80% of Bus Fleet to Need Replacement in 3 Years

A transport official underlined the government’s plans to modernize the aging public transport fleets, saying a large majority of the urban buses would be in need of renewal in less than three years. 
“Currently there are 16,000 dilapidated buses in service and by the Iranian year beginning on March 21, 2021, that number will hit 19,000, which makes up about 80% of our 24,000 buses,” said Marzieh Hesari, director for public transport and traffic at Iran’s Municipalities and Village Administrators Organization. 
She said a project spearheaded by the Ministry of Industries, Mining and Trade is in progress to replace the aging taxis and buses and called for cooperation from municipalities to help fund the initiative.
