Taxis wait at key points around Azadi Sq. Shuttle taxis for the bus and train stations stop directly west of the square on the north side of Saduqi (Tehran) St but finding a shared ride can take a while as most people seem happy enough to pay IR80,000 to go dar bast ('closed door', meaning a private hire)

For the bazaar, shuttle taxis towards Shohada Sq pick up briefly at the southern side of Azadi Sq, while buses start from that square's otherwise closed-off northeast quadrant. (This may change in a year or two when the Azadi Sq roadworks are finished.)
