Iran Taxi

Taxis are widely available in big and small cities. You can either hail a private or a shuttle taxi. Shuttle taxis travel between main streets and squares which you need to know the name of the place. Sometimes to arrive at your destination you might need to hop on more than one shuttle taxi or you can hail for a private ride as it will be more expensive. To hail a private taxi you can say ‘Dar Bast’ to the driver and he will take you to your place at any location in the city. That would be much better to agree on a price before you get in the car.

You will see a lot of yellow or green taxis waiting on their stations to be filled and take off toward clients destination. Taxis wait on lines with the name of their destinations written on a sign next to each line. If you do not see a taxi station step on the road, shout the name of your destination for the taxis going on your way and continue to your destination to stop.

There are also agency taxis or telephone taxis that every hotel and household knows one which has the number of their local agency taxis and they can call, ask for a car to your destination.
