With a study commissioned by the Asian Development Bank, ITDP China worked with the Beijing Transport Research Center, under the Communications Commission of the Beijing Municipal Government, on on- and off-street parking reform recommendations. Parking reform is being planned in Xicheng District and ITDP’s recommendations were well-received.
In 2015, ITDP-China presented this report in China Urban Traffic Development Forum, hosted by the Ministry of Communication, and in the same year, Beijing introduced 30 "parking-free street" and 100 "normalized parking street", and set the upper limit of parking in new constructed residential projects.

In March 11, 2015, ITDP-China attended the Urban Transport Development Forum in Beijing. The forum was organized by the Ministry of PRC, World Bank and GIZ, and it was aimed at finding out the solutions for the traffic problems in Chinese cities. It was also at the time when Beijing was making policies to tackle traffic congestion and illegal parking. ITDP China's Bram van Ooijen presented our Beijing parking study in the forum. The attendee of the conference also included the Beijing Transport Commission, Beijing Transportation Research Center and other planning institutes and universities.
