In an effort to ease mobility in the capital city, 110 new buses have been added to Tehran’s public transportation fleet.
According to Mojtaba Shafiei, the deputy head of Transportation and Traffic Department at Tehran Municipality, the induction was made late last week as per the first phase of a contract with Iran Khodro Company (IKCO), the major domestic automaker, ISNA reported.
"The new buses are built as per Euro-4 standards and include emission control nano-filters, special ramps for disabled passengers and updated safety features," he said.
“The vehicles will ply on 10 bus lines in 10 districts of Tehran, which had the highest level of public dissatisfaction over lack of transportation services.”
