The transportation system is very developed, Iran is covered with a wide network of highways.
Like in Shanghai, cars usually won't stop at the pedestrian crossing. The green light for pedestrians just indicates you can try to run across the road. Police ignores these violations, because otherwise the already heavy traffic will become unbearable.
Metropolitan citizens are crossing the road.
To cope with enormous traffic the city has implemented a rapid bus transit system.
All the sidewalks have lots of curb stops so that motorcyclists won’t be able to use them.
Carriage issue is solved ingeniously.
There are a lot of motocyclists, and it's noisy on the streets.
Motorcyclists have windshields with a clear window in the middle.
And attach colorful handmade bags as well.
There are two types of the taxi: yellow “shared taxi” (common in the Middle East) which take up to 4 people and green “closed door taxi” taking only one passenger. Unlike in Arab countries women are allowed to drive.
Around the whole country navigation is translated into English. Every crossing has a sign with the names of the streets and squares nearby.
Brand new Tehran metro was opened in 2000. There are five lines, the longest of which leads to Karaj, a city in the suburban area of Tehran, with a population of two millions. Metro is the easiest way of moving around the city. However, trains run every 10 minutes which is obviously not enough as at rush hour the cars are overcrowded.

Any railway or bus terminal got a stand with free phone chargers and drinking fountains.
