Suburban trains
Date Updated: 1394/09/01

Suburban trains are effective solutions for development and expansion of green transportation in order to reduce road traffic and to facilitate public transportation

Suburban railway transportation is a type that establishes connection between the metropolis and its satellite towns, and facilitates the transportation of daily commuters. Routes less than 200km are considered as local and suburban. Ideally, timely departure, high speed, and minimum stopover time are among the features of such trains.

In the course of past years, development of such facilities has been neglected despite the fast growth of metropolises. Absence of solidly designated authorities has contributed to the situation.

Fortunately, the with the attention and management of Dr. Rohani’s Administration, especially the Ministry of Roads and Urban Development, facilitation of every-day commuting through expansion of suburban and local railways has been put on agenda.

To this aim, Iranian Passenger Trains Company has planned and launched considerable projects to further expand the suburban railway transport.

* General approaches in expansion of railway tracks and services are listed here.

·        Sufficient capacity building in railway infrastructures

·        Improvement of the existing railway tracks to provide better services for suburban commuters

·        Providing appropriate rolling stock for suburban railways

·        Development of suburban stations with an eye on commercialization of them and creating jobs

·        Updating communication and signposts systems such as the ATC and tracking of existing routes in order to increase the capacity of service providing

·        Feasibility studies for connecting the metro and railways lines in order to integrate the intercity and suburban railway systems

 * The suburban projects currently in progress by the Islamic Republic of Iran Railways Company, the most significant of which are as follows:

·        Tehran- Varamin- Pishva line (the 3rd and 4th lines) – 55km

·        Pishva – Garmsar (the 3rd and 4th lines)

·        Tehran- Karaj (the 3rd and 4th lines)- 40km

·        Karaj – Abyek (2nd line) – 52km

·        Abyek- Qazvin (2nd line) – 51km

·        Tehran – Parand – 48km

 

Features of the new suburban trains:

They are 4-car trains of 336 seats, reaching a maximum speed of 120km/h. The interior of these trains is modern, safe and ergonomic. All carriages are well-lit, and are equipped with hat racks, handrails for the passengers safety and ease of move, fire extinguishing canisters, and state-of-the-art AC systems. Car doors are monitored and controlled through 12 cameras in the cockpits. There is also a PA system with sound amplifiers inside and out of the train.

 

Tehran- Karaj- Hashtgerd suburban railways

Launching the suburban line between Tehran, Karaj and Hashtgerd has been put on agenda in order to provide service for the residents of the areas and relieve the road traffic load. The plan includes construction of parking area and expansion of the station in Karaj, as well as construction of parking area at Hashtgerd station.

 

According to timetable, the journey would last for 75 min. from Hashtger to Rah Ahan square. Also, the Rah Ahan- Shahr-e Qods trip would take 30 minutes.
