Beijing plans to support the use of autonomous vehicles in urban transportation services, including urban public electric bus transportation, online ride-hailing, and car rental.

Through the legislation, Beijing aims to address key issues faced by autonomous vehicle innovation activities in specific areas, and provide clear, transparent and predictable institutional norms for market entities operating Level 3 and above autonomous vehicles while upholding safety as a top priority.
