Transport integration is the basic structure and prior field for the coordinated development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei. According to the Integrated Transport Programme for the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Coordinated Development and the Planning for the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Intercity Railway Network, by 2020, the three areas will form a grid-shaped regional transport network with multiple points. The "one-hour commute circle" between the central urban areas of Beijing, Tianjin and Shijiazhuang and their new towns and satellite cities, and the "one-hour traffic circle" serving Beijing, Tianjin, Baoding and Tangshan will be shaped. In the Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei region, residents will be able to reach a neighboring city within 1.5 hours. By 2030, another 24 intercity railways, with the Beijing-Tianjin, Beijing-Tangshan-Qinhuangdao arteries as three main axes, will be built, with a total length of over 3,400 km. Thus, an intercity railway network, with "four vertical, four horizontal and one looped intercity railways" as its frame, will be formed. A "safe, convenient, effective, green and economy" integrated comprehensive transport system will be built to support and lead adjustment of the regional spatial layout and industrial transformation and upgrading.
