TEHRAN – Officials are making changes to the Odd|Even road sharing rules in the Iranian capital as of 2018.
Mohsen Pour Seyed Aqaei, deputy of transport fleet and traffic in Tehran municipality, said the Odd-Even traffic scheme will be revised so that that everyone can enter restricted areas of the capital depending on their need and by paying fees to the municipality.
Under the new scheme the city will be divided into three zones A, B, and C and each area will have its own traffic restrictions. All drivers can enter all three zones by using specific reloadable prepaid debit cards, councilor Afshin Habibzadeh explained.
But the charges for each zone vary. For example Zone A – closer to city center and more affected by air pollution and traffic – will cost more to access. In addition to the zones the time and the day also matter in working out the charges, Habibzadeh added.
