Guiyang, capital of Southwest China's Guizhou province, made great progress in developing its transportation industry from 2016 to 2020.
A transportation hub system in Southwest China's Guizhou province with Guiyang at the core was built. The city is within a two to four-hour high-speed train ride from all other provincial cities around Guizhou province and a two to three-hour ride to all cities in the Yangtze River Delta region and the Pearl River Delta region by air.
The urban road network was further improved, with the total length of urban roads exceeding 2,200 kilometers, while the transportation service capacity has been significantly improved as well.
The service capacity of local public transport was also enhanced. Guiyang was recognized as a national demonstration city for public transport construction, forming a multi-level public transport system combining urban rail transit and conventional public transport tools like buses and taxis.
Rural roads were further unblocked and connected with 2,980 roads in rural areas extending 6,467.1 km renovated.
Guiyang also improved management of public transportation services. The city established a regular training mechanism for the public transport industry and set up a service quality reward fund to motivate people working in the industry to improve service quality.
It made intensive efforts to crack down on traffic violations. From 2016 to 2020, the city has investigated and dealt with more than 40,000 traffic violations by taxis, shuttles, chartered tour buses, and trucks, greatly improving traffic safety.
Measures to control urban congestion were taken over the past several years as well, with the urban traffic congestion alleviated and the proportion of green and efficient traffic travel increased.
