Metro[edit]

For reference, cities with underground railway system under construction and to be completed with in a few years:

Bicycle should have its own section[edit]

Over half a billion bicycles should rate a mention in this section, as well as the historical policies. As I mentioned in the 'Environment of China' discussion, before (about) 1980 I think you needed a special permit to have a privately-owned vehicle. If someone could substantiate this, that would be great. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.238.161.204 (talk) 16:27, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

Yes the lack of a substantial discussion of cycling, historical and present, renders this article sub-standard. I hope to get back to it - but please don't wait. Pedalissimo (talk) 20:43, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

Road transportation problems in Beijing[edit]

  • Shai Oster, August 24, 2010, Beijing: World’s Biggest Parking Lot, Wall Street Journal
    • Beijing will have 7 Million vehicles by 2015 [1]
    • Beijing ranked top in the world for "commuter pain", according to IBM study [2]
    • Study shows Beijing traffic worst in world [3]
    • Example of near worse-case scenario [4]

Might be able to find a relevant place to slide all this information in. -- 李博杰  | Talk contribs email 17:38, 24 August 2010 (UTC)

Transport safety[edit]

There's not a word on transport or road safety in this article, nor in the articles Expressways of China or China National Highways. I don't know enough about the subject to initiate much, but I believe it is a serious omission. New article, anyone? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 116.21.193.54 (talk) 01:27, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Maps[edit]

The 3 transportation maps used in the article need an update. Currently, a part of PRC - Mailand China, the maps also display territories not under control of the PRC. It's ok if I put Taiwan networks out of the maps? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.232.244.188 (talk) 12:14, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: page moved. Since multiple pages are involved, one multi-request should have been made. Moved this and renamed the destination as a disambiguation. UtherSRG (talk) 03:51, 29 March 2012 (UTC)



Transport in the People's Republic of ChinaTransport in China

Consistency move in line with the previous PRC->China move. All incoming links to the current Transport in China refer to the country of China (formerly PRC) and not any of the other places on the dab page currently at that title. This would have been nominated as a technical move but there are a small minority of editors who oppose moves of this type because they disagreed with the PRC->China move. NULL talk

  • Oppose. Consistency should also applied across articles such as Culture of China, History of China, etc., where the word 'China' covers both Chinas of the divided China. Jeremy (talk) 10:26, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Support Present day topic. The scope issue surrounding HK/Macau will not be affected by the move, existing even at the current title. There's definitely scope to be more definitive though. CMD (talk) 15:09, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Support per nomination. mgeo talk 23:34, 21 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Oppose. Consistency should apply. For most topical articles, China means the wider (but divided) China. Jeffrey (202.189.98.142) (talk) 15:09, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
    • This move is to establish consistency. The article titles for every other 'Transport in X' article use the name of the country as X. It was determined in the PRC->China move that 'China' does not mean "the wider (but divided) China", it means the country of China. NULL talk

      • Most topical articles titled "in China" or "of China" are referring to the geographical area of China, of which Taiwan is part of. These include History of China, Culture of China, and Cuisine of China, to name a few. For articles specifically referring to the country, "in the PRC" or "of the PRC" is used. Jeffrey (202.189.98.142) (talk) 09:43, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
        • What 'most articles' do with China is what's currently being debated. If we had a series of articles on Footopia and the main article on Footopia was moved to Foolandia, your opposition is effectively the same as saying "we shouldn't move all the 'in Footopia' articles to 'in Foolandia' because they're all already at 'in Footopia'". The status quo argument only works when the status quo exists. With the PRC->China move, the status quo was changed. NULL talk

  • Alternative proposal: To rename it as Transport in China (country), and rename other topical articles as Foo in China (geographical region). Jeffrey (202.189.98.142) (talk) 09:43, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
  • There's still no evidence that this supposed concept of a geographical region exists. CMD (talk) 10:19, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Rename to match the country article at China. Timrollpickering (talk) 15:16, 23 March 2012 (UTC)
  • Support target page is a dab created as a redirect to this page. No reason to oppose this. I don't oppose summary style paragraphs to any of the current dab targets in this article, now or at the proposed name. SchmuckyTheCat (talk)
