China losing money and people in floods. Raising #publictransit fares in Beijing will mean more cars and more CO2.

Transport fares should benefit the public interest - OP-ED - "Some complain that one of the rare privileges of Beijing residents may soon be taken away. Experts are also divided.

Beijing residents have been enjoying these low prices for almost six years. The city had invested in public transportation before the 2008 Olympic Games so as to promote public transport and avoid traffic headaches. The policy has continued since then as the city witnessed a growing population over the following years."
