In the rapid process of urbanization, the transport facilities in Beijing have developed swiftly with the increase of motor vehicles. The problem of traffic congestion, energy consumptions and carbon emissions are becoming increasingly prominent. Based on the statistics of people trip survey in Beijing from 2005 to 2010, it predicted the development of transport under various scenarios and calculated the carbon emissions of different transport modes by using low-carbon transport model. Vigorously develop public transport and zero pollution of bicycle transport is the inevitable trend to realize low carbon transport.
