This project has been started since 2010.03.21, and there are 30 buses whitch start showing the city with the explanations of tourguides about historical places of Tabriz, in 2 shifts, from 4 stations. Since 1389, these buses have been the host of guests and tourists each summer .

Taxi ask me
A huge number of tourists choose the Tabriz as their traveling destination to use the pleasant weather of it and countless historical and natural attractions. Considering the ease of access to these places and solving the tourists' communication and asking address problems because of the common language of the people which is Turkish, we started the traveler information taxis known as the "Ask Me Taxis" program in 2010 throughout the city. 30 taxis are present at the city entrances, crowded areas and specified stations. In these taxis, the driver is proficient in all the addresses and also there is a professional tourist guide in the taxi. They provide their services through close interaction with tourists, giving addresses, giving maps and brochures and explaining about Tabriz. The taxis are at work since 8 a.m. till 8 p.m. They are marked with "Tourism Information" boards on top of them.
