To fulfill the commitment to building a barrier-free environment for the 2022 Games, Beijing and Zhangjiakou have been ramping up efforts to put into place accessible facilities and services.

In November 2019, Beijing launched a three-year campaign to make the city more accessible.

Over the last three years, around 336,000 sites across the city have completed barrier-free renovations.

The city of Zhangjiakou has also shored up its accessibility facilities. As of January 2022, it has built or renovated over 358 kilometers of sidewalks for visually-impaired people, 680 barrier-free toilets, a large number of barrier-free spectator seats at public venues and accessible hotel rooms.
