Tehran Urban and Suburban Railway Company is renovating subway trains to quickly optimize the environmentally friendly mode of transportation before the likely opening of schools in October.
According to Ali Abdollahpour, the head of TUSRC, 37 DC and 37 AC trains are undergoing major repairs and will be back in service within a month, Tasnim News Agency reported.
The official also stated that five two-story train cars on the intercity Line 5, which connects Tehran to the neighboring Alborz Province, were recently renovated and restarted services.
“The renovation has been funded from the state budget and the resources of Tehran Municipality,” Abdollahpour explained, adding that a lack of financial resources had delayed repairs that undercut the safety and efficiency of the transportation system.
