Tehran's mayor, Dr. Ghalibaf addressed the inaugural ceremony saying:
Polls conducted in recent years have shown that one of the most important concerns of Tehran citizens is motor traffic and related problems because it causes health problems, increases economic costs and leads to countless hours of wasted time. Therefore, the Tehran Municipality and the Islamic City Council cannot be indifferent to challenges related to this issue.
