Getting around Tehran
Tehran has gained notoriety for its congested streets and constant traffic, so getting around the city will take some patience. Shared taxis, in which you hitch a ride with other passengers with the same destination, are common in Tehran. To hail them, stand on a street corner and wait for a cab to slow down. Tell the driver your destination, and he will stop if he agrees. You may also negotiate to hire the taxi privately, i.e. without other passengers, but you will be expected to pay several times more what you would pay for a shared taxi ride.
Tehran also maintains a public bus system, but because routes and schedules are only posted in Persian, it can be difficult to navigate the buses as a visitor.
