"Buses Around Iran..." Iran Transportation Tip by coceng

Iran Transportation: 60 reviews and 52 photos

Buses are taken by many Iranians & also tourists when going places around Iran.
They are so convenience & clean (well, most of the buses that I took anyway).
There are 2 types of buses :

VOLVO : They are slightly bigger with comfortable seats. This is the type of bus that you MUST choose when taking the overnight journey around Iran.

MERCEDES : They are good also but their seats are not comfortable for nightsleep !
The seats are hard & not as comfortable.

When buying your bus ticket, please mention : VOLVO.
The Volvo buses are slightly more expensive than the Mercedes buses.
Take note of this; Sometimes, when you have the ticket for Volvo buses but there are not that many passengers going to your destinations, the bus company then would put you in another bus, PASSING THROUGH your destination. If you are lucky you get the Volvo bus as well, if not then you would have to sit on a Mercedes bus !
