Xiamen advances on plan to add 10,000 public parking spots

City officials recently announced that work is more than 40 percent complete on plans add more than 10,000 off-road public parking spaces. By the end of May, Xiamen had added a total of 4,100 new spots, well ahead of the original schedule.

As of the end of last year, Xiamen is home to more than 5,800 parking lots and approximately one million parking spots.

There are roughly 77 parking spots in the city for every 100 Xiamen-registered passenger vehicles.

Off-road public parking spaces, which currently account for less than eight percent of the total, are growing more quickly than curbside parking.
