Beijing will introduce "public bus pooling" in the city, which will enable passengers to go online and detail what their individual needs are for a bus journey, Beijing Youth Daily reported on Tuesday.

The local public transport authority is setting up a "quasi door-to-door" bus service, that will put an end to the frustrations of disgruntled bus passengers complaining about long waiting times.

It says that it will focus on serving large, residential communities, with the aim of providing bus routes more catered to where there are large groups of people, rather than serving existing stops and making people sit through a pre-defined route.

It is also hoping to make the service safe by helping passengers find others to travel with, should they be concerned about making journeys alone.

The public will expect buses to arrive like a car and they will meet personalised needs of passengers, Beijing Youth Daily reported.
