Beijing Municipal Commission of Health and Family Planning, the city’s health authority, has  banned smoking in the city’s 71,000 taxis, including electric-powered taxis in its suburb area. This is a bid to further implement the rules that smoking is forbidden in all public places in Beijing, which took effect on June 1, 2015.  

Neither the taxi drivers or the passengers are allowed to smoke in the taxis, and these vehicles are required to post No Smoking signs. Any passenger who witnesses smoking in a taxi is encouraged to report the incident to Beijing’s health and family planning service hotline or inform Beijing Traffic Law Enforcement Team Corps.
