Tehran’s ailing public transportation will soon get a boost with hundreds of new buses and minibuses joining the fleet, Tehran Municipality’s deputy director for traffic and transportation affairs said.
Manaf Hashemi added that 120 buses and 130 minibuses are to join Tehran’s public transportation fleet. 
“The vehicles are to be delivered by local carmaker Iran Khodro as per an agreement signed in mid-August between Tehran Mayor Pirouz Hanachi and IKCO’s CEO Farshad Moqimi,” he said.
According to Hashemi, the contract is worth 4 trillion rials ($12.5 million). 
“Tehran Municipality made a down payment for the new vehicles last week and IKCO promised to start delivering buses and minibuses in a month. The first delivery of 22 new vehicles is due early November,” he added.
