Tehran Bus Company is to induct 100 new buses within two months to renew the city’s aging public transportation fleet.
Peiman Sanandaji, the head of Tehran Bus Company, said based on a recent deal signed between TBC and a local vehicle manufacturing company Setareh Nik Aria, 100 new two-cabin buses will be added to Tehran’s bus fleet by late September, ISNA reported.
Although the measure will give a boost to the capital’s public transportation network, many have argued that it is inadequate.
Official data show that 6,000 buses are currently operating in Tehran, half of which has outlived usefulness and is fit for the scrap yard. 
Sanandaji said 500 more new buses will join the transport fleet by the end of the current fiscal year (March 19, 2020).
