Train fares have only risen by 10% after a long period of steady prices since 2015, the deputy for passenger affairs at the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways said in reaction to the recent complaints on high costs. 
According to Mirhassan Mousavi, except for a handful of VIP trains, which provide special services for passengers, all train tickets cost between 800,000 to 1,100,000 rials ($5.9 to $8), ISCA news reported.
Although the rail operating centers suggested higher prices for tickets considering the recent galloping inflation, "the increase applied to the prices in mid-June did not exceed 10%," the official added, emphasizing that the fares are under control.
