While Beijing's subway system is the quickest and most efficient way to get around, it can get terribly crowded especially during peak hours. Buses are also convenient if you understand Chinese. Taxis are comfortable, but can get stuck in traffic. Bike-sharing companies such as Ofos, Mobikes, and Blue Gogos offer a greener alternative.
