China Boost Urban Transport to Deal With Traffic Congestion

China plans to ease traffic congestion, especially in the public transport which accounts for 60% of all auto traffic in town and cities.

The government will offer fuel subsidies and tax breaks for mass transit vehicles to support the traffic congestion measures for urban transport. According to Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development previsions more than 300 million Chinese citizens, from the country’s total of 1.4 billion people, will move from the countryside to the cities by 2030, besides the existing 600 million. Therefore, the worsening pollution and traffic congestions forces the government to come up with solutions to improve public transport.

“As China’s urbanization accelerates, the development of urban transport faces new challenges,” the State Council said. The government “must prioritize the development of public transit systems to ease traffic congestion, transform urban transport, improve people’s quality of life and improve the provision of public services.”

According to National Bureau of Statistics data, at the end of 2011 there were 62.4 million private passenger vehicles in China, seven times more than the 8.45 million at the end of 2003. The Ministry od Transport expects this number to surpass 200 million in the following seven years.
