The urban area of Pinggu (90,457 in township) has an estimated area from the Google Earth image of 11.5 km2 (4.4 sq mi) and an estimated population of 70,000.[1]

As of August, 2004, it is the only district or county not linked by an expressway, either existing or under construction. However, plans reveal that an expressway to Pinggu and ultimately to Tianjin (the projected Jingping Expressway) may be coming soon. (More on this in Expressways of Beijing).

Pinggu District was formerly Pinggu County until 2001.

Its postal code number is 101200.

Pinggu district prides itself on the cultivation of the peach.
