A customized bus service is expected to be launched and be running in Beijing by September. The public transport sector would provide the business shuttle service for commuters, Beijing Morning Post reported.
The shuttle buses, equipped with air conditioning, would ensure a one person, one seat service. The buses would cost more than ordinary city buses, but within office workers' affordability.
The public transport sector will start looking into commuters' travel needs in some large communities and workplaces on Monday through its official website - www.bjbus.com, where the public can participate in a survey.
The time, location and routes of the business shuttle buses will be arranged according to passenger flow and travel requirements. Commuters will be able to make reservations and pay through the customized bus platform.
