China News Service, Beijing, September 26 (Reporter Du Yan) The Beijing Municipal Transportation Commission stated today that in accordance with the "Beijing Rail Transit Operation Safety Regulations" and other regulations, the Beijing Transportation Department revised the "Beijing Rail Transit Passenger Code". It is clear that from September 28, 2021, passengers are prohibited from bringing electric mobility tools into the station.
In order to further strengthen the safety management of Beijing rail transit operations, ensure the order of operations, and maintain a safe, convenient and harmonious ride environment, the opinions of all parties have been integrated and the public opinions have been extensively sought. The related content of Article 14 has been revised, and the content of “No electric mobility tools and other items that may hinder the passage in stations or vehicles or that may affect the safety of operations are allowed to be carried on the bus, except for barrier-free electric wheelchairs”. , It is clear that passengers are not allowed to bring electric mobility tools into the station and ride; Article 14 Item 9 deletes the content of “auto-balance vehicle”, and clarifies that passengers “are not allowed to use folding bicycles, various scooters, roller shoes, skateboards, etc., in stations and compartments. , Do not bring inflatable balloons into the station and ride the bus."
The Beijing Municipal Transportation Commission stated that carrying electric bicycles and other vehicles in the station has low fire protection performance, cannot be effectively extinguished as soon as possible after a fire occurs, may block passages, affect evacuation and other safety issues. There are problems in underground spaces where subway stations and trains are relatively closed. There is a greater safety risk, and the prohibition of electric mobility tools from entering the subway conforms to the current fire safety situation and the safety requirements of the majority of passengers, and should be prohibited.
The problem of the driving industry and the last mile commuting can be solved by other transportation methods such as shared bicycles.
