Cars choking Beijing. Solution. Free buses.

Beijing Symposium Shares International Experience in Urban Transport Development: "Guo Jifu, Director of BTRC, initiated the discussion by illustrating the following four transport challenges faced by Beijing, as registered vehicles in the megacity reached 5.2 million in 2012 and its metro system carries 10 million passengers per day.
  • Low efficiency of road utilization and severe congestion
  • Inadequate public transport capacity
  • Funding gap for infrastructure development
  • Difficulty in raising public awareness and gaining social acceptance to promote innovative solutions and reforms."
Attention Mr. Guo, make it free and you will get the attention of the public. Do you remember Guangzhou during the Asia games?
