On May 24, two buses are running on the BRT lane of the Beijing Link Road.

The first special BRT lane on the Beijing Link Road opened on May 24, which is 8.6 kilometers and 8.8 kilometers long to and from Beijing, respectively.

The 18 lines of buses running on the BRT lane will raise their capacities in rush hours in order to relieve the traffic pressure of the Beijing Link Road and the Beijing Subway Batong Line. The use of the BRT line will shorten the time from Siliqiao to Sihuidong from 20 minutes to 9 minutes and at the same time reduce the load factor of the Beijing Link Road from 135 percent to 114 percent.
