How to get around within Tabriz
Getting around Tabriz is currently limited to taxis, shared taxis, along with buses. The city’s transportation is currently waiting on the addition of a metro or train service that is currently under construction. For a whole day, taxis can be chartered for a whole day visit through Tabriz and its immediate surrounding areas. There are shared taxis all throughout Tabriz as well. The passing-by Paykans are available within the area by the road; it is best to know a bit of Persian when trying to get around in the ride since it would require saying the destination quite loudly by the road. When within the shared taxis, around four locals of any gender and age ride towards the same destination, and can be quite an adventure. Lastly, Tabriz’s buses can be a bit challenging to non-locals. With neither a map nor a schedule available, it is recommended for tourists to go by the shared taxis rather than figure out how the buses work.
