Passenger vehicles will get a free pass on expressways in Beijing from Sept 30 to Oct 7 this year, according to the Beijing Capital Highway Development Group, a State-owned company responsible for construction and operation of expressways in the capital.

Passenger cars with seven seats or less as well as motorcycles will get a free pass through toll roads, bridges and tunnels during Spring Festival, Tomb-Sweeping Day, Labor Day and National Day, according to a notice by the State Council.

It will be up to local governments to choose whether to remove tolls on airport highways, the notice said.

The Ministry of Transport said that starting from the National Day holiday this year, the toll exemption policy should be implemented for passenger cars nationwide.
