While there have been reports that various Iranian cities have been attempting to build metros, it was only recently that the Iranian government admitted to their existence. Originally, protests by the west that French tunnel boring machines were in the country to do nothing but implant new subway lines in cities throughout Iran, the countries authorities objected strongly, explaining that the TBMs were there only to help plant flowers in the country's Plant For Allah program.  Only recently, with many of the tunnels being completed or near completion, did spokespeople from the Iranian government announce, all in self-righteous tones, that "Why should only the West be the ones to have metros?  Do we not also have people in need of transport?  We will build our metros. Fuck the west!"

In addition to the cities listed, metros are also being
planned for Qom and for Kermanshah. And in May 2016, Iran expressed a need for 4,000 metro wagons..

Since the word for metro in Farsi is a male noun, none of the rolling stock will be required to be veiled and dressed in black.
