Transportation

RAJA Trains run a fairly comprehensive internal rail network. Major intercity trains oeprate on five main regional routes; Azarbaijan route (Tehran Jolfa); Golestan route (Tehran Gorgan); Hormozgan route (Tehran Bandar-e-Abbas); Khorasan route (Tehran Mashhad) and Khozetan route (Tehran Khorramshahr). There are many areas in the mountains and the desert which can only be reached by rail. There are some air-conditioned trains, and sleeping and dining cars on many trains. For further details contact RAJA Trains (c/o Iranian Islamic Republic Railways) (see Travel International section) for details.

Taxi Services

Available in all cities. The urban taxis (orange or blue) will carry several passengers at a time and are much cheaper than the private taxis which only carry one person. Unofficial taxis should be avoided; use only legitimate taxis or those ordered through legitimate agencies. Group taxis for up to ten people are available for intercity travel. Prices are negotiated beforehand and tipping is not necessary

Buses

Widespread, cheap and comfortable, although services tend to be erratic.

Car hire

Available in most cities and from airports. Documentation: An International Driving Permit is recommended but it is not a legal requirement. Personal insurance is required. All motorists entering Iran must possess a Carnet de Passage en Douane and an International Certificate of Vehicle ownership.
