Public bicycle system was needed to be developed into voluntary carbon emission reduction project. In this paper, CCER methodology “Bus Rapid Transit Projects” was used to calculate carbon emission reductions of Beijing public bicycle system in 2012 and estimate revenue. The results show that the total carbon emission reductions of Beijing public bicycle in 2012 was 43.95 t CO2 and public bicycle operators would get income 1538 RMB from selling it. Moreover, it was about 6874.5 t CO2 in 2015, which would make income 240000 RMB. Therefore, with the continued development and expansion of public bicycle system, the economic benefit of operators was expected to achieve great improvement through carbon trading in Beijing and other heavy traffic cities.

Key words: public bicycle, voluntary emission reduction, profitability, baseline scenario, emission reductions
