Kunming banned private cars from entering a handful of downtown streets for six hours this week, joining 125 other Chinese cities in observance of World Car Free Day.
It will be the third year in a row that the city has restricted private cars on September 22, but this year’s event will have significantly fewer restrictions compared to the last two years.
Go Kunming reports the ban will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. As has always been the case, bicycles, electric scooters, taxis and public buses will be exempt from the ban. But the restrictions on cars are fewer than in previous years and appears to be a continuing trend.
