Travel Demand Management Options in Beijing
Asian Development Bank | May 2017
Rapid urbanization and motorization combined with high population density have led to serious congestion and air quality problems in the People’s Republic of China capital of Beijing. While Beijing accounts for less than 2% of the population, more than 10% of the country’s vehicles ply the city’s roads. This study is part of the Asian Development Bank’s initiative to support greener and more sustainable transport systems that are convenient and lessen carbon dioxide emissions. Read how congestion charging, vehicle ownership quotas, and progressive parking reforms can improve Beijing’s approach to travel demand management.
