Beijing to carry out 110 measures on public transportation "Apart from the price adjustments, Beijing is rolling out a slew of measures to provide better services to passengers.

Four new subway lines will be operational by the end of this year. More bus lanes will be set aside on major roads and expressways. Passengers will be able to monitor subway traffic in real-time via the Internet so as to plan their commute more effectively.

Improved transportation system will ensure that in three years, 90 percent of the passengers in the capital can walk within one kilometre to the nearest subway station. All buses will also be equipped with air conditioners."
