Trending in China: Beijing Tackles Parking Shortage With Shared Spaces

What’s trending?

The concept of “paid staggered shared parking” is trending on Weibo, after state-owned broadcaster CCTV released a video introducing the new strategy in Beijing.

What’s the story?

Beijing has been struggling with terrible traffic and difficulties in parking. But recently, the city seems to have found a new solution. According to CCTV, some parking lots have adopted a new shared parking policy — two car owners may use the same space day and night. Parking during the day will cost 600 yuan ($91) per month while the night shift costs 300 yuan.

Some office buildings have adopted the approach, renting out parking spaces to staff during the day and providing them to nearby residents at night. Government institutions are also renting out their exclusive parking spaces to the public to ease pressure.

Although this approach can ensure the full use of resources, many parking lot managers and users worry about investment and other risks associated with such a strategy.

What are people saying online?

Aside from praising the increasing utilization of space, social media users also expressed optimism about future management. “Only when this action starts can follow-up management gradually improve,” read one comment.

But people also worried about time management. “Arriving early and leaving late are problems, and I sense trouble when I think about it,” another comment read.
