Simple solution!
Cars with one person take up the space during rush hour. Impose toll charges. Use toll collected to improve, build and maintain transport system network.
Driving in a car is a luxury. Driver should pay as the car occupies more space.
At the same time, the extra toll could form a foundation to research and study better ways and solutions for traffic in China.

Parking charges will at least RMB10per first thirty minutes and increment of fifty percent for subsequent twenty minutes interval. Parking fees not paid will have cars detained.

I don't think the toll charges will work. Most drivers don't care about the toll. Also, much of the traffic congestion, actually results from drivers who don't follow the rules of the road, which need to be addressed in eliminating Beijing's incessant gridlock.

Los Angeles has the worst traffic of any U.S. city in terms of average time wasted per commuter, according to a 2015 traffic scorecard from transportation analytics firm Inrix.
Los Angeles snagged the top spot with 81 hours spent in traffic per commuter in 2015. Residents of Washington, D.C. and San Francisco were a little better off -- but not much. They tied for second with 75 wasted hours per year.
