Ride-Hailing Applications (iOS & Android)

If you are tired of getting into taxis that overcharge and are never on time, Snapp & TAP30 are the convenient solutions to almost all your transportation issues. Clones of the popular US ride-hailing companies Uber and Lyft, the Iranian startups Snapp & TAP30 have quickly dominated almost all transportation routes inside urban centers. You can get a ride 24 hours a day in any metropolitan area in almost every major city in Iran. The fare and route are fixed from the beginning so you have clarity in your transaction. You can choose to pay with either cash or your Iran Tourist Card.

If you are using an Android device, you can simply download both apps from Google Play.

For iOS users however, the process is a bit more complicated as Apple has decided to remove many Iranian apps from the App Store. The alternatives are using the web-app (currently only in Farsi) or downloading the apps from alternative sources. We have made a comprehensive blog post regarding Snapp where you can learn more about how it works and how to install it on iOS devices.
