Beijing to start 6-month vehicles use control

From October 11 to April 10 of next year, Beijing will pilot a vehicle restriction program to ease traffic congestion and improve air quality in the capital, China News Service reported on Sunday.

According to a notice issued by the municipal government, all vehicles in Beijing will be divided into five categories based on the last numbers of their license plates: the cars with plates ending with 1 and 6 will be banned from roads on Monday, 2 and 7 on Tuesday, 3 and 8 on Wednesday, 4 and 9 on Thursday, and 5 and 0 on Friday.

The restrictions for privately-owned vehicles will be lifted every day between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., while government-owned cars will face 24-hour restrictions one day a week.

Vehicles used for business purposes, including those of government departments at all levels, state-owned enterprises, institutions and social organizations, will be required to stay in the garage one workday per week.
