Beijing To Introduce Free Park'n'Ride Lots

To encourage more motorists to take advantage of public transit, the city is planning to build free parking lots near new transit stations.

"Free parking lots will be built near subway and bus stops in Beijing to encourage drivers to use public transport in downtown Beijing, an official said Monday.

Twenty-six free or low-cost large-scale parking lots are included in the plan to reduce traffic jams in downtown Beijing, said Zhou Nansen, a member of the Beijing Municipal Commission of Urban Planning.

The first two, located near some subway stations in Beijing, will each cover about 20 acres, Zhou said."
