Beijing's lofty eco-friendly goals for 2012

Global Times, December 25
Authors: Wen Tao and Li Qian

Traveling by bike will be chiefly promoted as it provides a solution to the city's congestion problem. A series of facilities are planned to encourage cycling, including exclusive bicycle lanes on both sides of the road, especially in major office areas like the CBD and Zhongguancun. More than 20,000 bicycles will be available for rent at 500 leasing stations, mostly near subway stations and other traffic hubs.
