Traffic Problem and Pollution Issues in Shenzhen

Shenzhen is a major city in the south of Southern China's Guangdong Province, situated immediately north of Hong Kong. The area became China's first—and one of the most successful—Special Economic Zones (SEZs).
In February 2012, the total number of vehicles in Shenzhen city exceeded two million, ranking second in China. The emission from these vehicles has a bad effect on the air quality, including PM2.5 increases.

In 2011, the total fuel consumption of Shenzhen city buses and taxis was close to 541,000 tons. The CO2 emissions were near 1.77 million tons, which will take 100 standard football fields of forests about 70 years to absorb.

City Bus and Taxi Population in Shenzhen

The total number of city buses and taxis in 2011 were 13,500 and 14,340. By the end of 2011 there will be 2,000 New Energy buses and 300 New Energy taxis.
