Providing people with decent public transportation services is of high importance worldwide and there is much room for improvement in Iranian cities. 
Plans are on track in cities like Ahvaz, Karaj and Tehran for the expansion of subway networks, YJC reported.
The halted subway project in Ahvaz, a less-developed city in terms of urban transportation system in the southwestern province of Khuzestan, has received 5 trillion rials ($2 million) from the Plan and Budget Organization.
According to Mojtaba Yousefi, the city’s representative in parliament, with the growing road traffic, especially in the central parts of the city, the need for an urban subway system is being felt more than before. 
“Metro can alleviate traffic congestion in the main thoroughfares of the city and reduce the society’s carbon footprint from the environment,” he said.
