With Iran’s largest ride-hailing company, Snapp, signing a deal with Tehran Municipality, the long-drawn fracas between urban managers and online mobility service providers has come to a close.
After the Iranian government issued a guideline over regulating online mobility services, Snapp’s archrival, Tap30 signed a deal with TM in mid-October.
At the time, Snapp managers criticized the guideline for being lopsided and giving e-hailing companies the short end of the stick. Since then, talks had continued between the company and the government.
During the signing ceremony of the deal on Sunday, Snapp CEO Jhubin Alaghband said, “Sticking points in the negotiations were discussed in 18 meetings between Snapp, Vice Presidential Office for Science and Technology, Tehran Municipality’s Transportation and Traffic Organization and other stakeholders,” Peivast news website reported.
