As of 2008, a total of 108 000 cars were registered in the capital city, whereas this number has increased up to 210 000 this year. Therefore, the existing infrastructure cannot keep up with this accelerated development in terms of traffic load, security, street services, traffic management as well as parking lots. As a result of this, on August 14th 2012 the Head of Ulaanbaatar city road agency D.Od and the General Manager of Ulaanbaatar City Ch. Bat presented a program in order to reduce the traffic volume on the streets of Ulaanbaatar.
Some of the suggestions made were as follows: to transport students with school buses, to extend the first lane for public transportation, to change the working hours of trade centres as well as to increase the number of paid parking lots.
