Bus transportation has a significant stand in facing urban transports, especially in Metropolitans. One of the steps taken in the area of bus services in Tehran in recent years, is the transference many services of lines to the private sector. This study seek to determine the effects of privatization on providing bus services in Tehran metropolitan. The importance of Extremist bus lines in mobility and better access to information systems, led this experimental study to carry out within these lines. To a experimental study, we compared the performance of lines 1 and 2 (state lines) and line 7 (private line), during the years 1389 to 1391 using the quarterly data. The most widely used method in this type of study, is data envelopment analysis. The results showed that the relative deficiency of line 7 in comparison to the state lines that from the point of kind of managerial deficiency and scale deficiency which scale deficiency was more intensive. Also the deficiency of private line in the output of passengers' transportation was further than output of travelled kilometres. Therefore, based on the research findings, it seems to entrance the private motivations into bus transit services in ways followed, have negative results.
