what Beijing desperately need is a uniformed colour for all their busses

it's like a zoo in there. Each model has its own livery.

Great Pictures of Beijing BRT! An excellent presentation was done re: China's BRT at the UN Green Cities Confereance last summer in San Francisco! Beijing's buses are great. Similar models as used on Oakland CA BRT.

They look very nice! I don't recall seeing them when I was there last year so this must be quite new. Which manufacturer built those buses?

Beijing's BRT & buses are quite similar to those in LA.

Reflects the globalization of the transit industry. Not too long ago, North America, Latin America, Britain, Western Europe, The Soviet bloc, Middle East, Japan, Korea, China, etc. all had very distinctive types of transit vehicles. Now Beijing basically has the same buses as LA & Toronto.

I've ridden these buses a couple of times in Beijing, and they are indeed nice.

China Largest Subway by 2020

Beijing, Nov 20 The Chinese capital could have the largest subway of the world by 2020, to snatch from the London tube that position, local press reported on Monday.

According to a plan formulated by municipal authorities, the subway transport network could have 19 lines covering 561 km to alleviate the current traffic jams.

The Beijing News daily states the project would be approved by the city's Development and Reform Commission to endorse the necessary funds to implement it.

In addition to the four existing lines, another four are being built for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, three within city limits and one to join the international airport.

With this project, the Chinese capital will have 15 urban lines and another four for the most distant suburbs.

Zhao Hui, one of the participants in the project, said the 19-subway network plan is a long-term vision which could be subject to future modifications.
