Jobs-Housing separation would make a significant impact on the urban traffic, causing serious traffic congestion problem in the morning and evening peak periods.This paper uses spatial distribution of resident/employed population and the population ratio of day and night as the main methods for research on the characteristics of jobs-housing separation. By comparing the characteristics of jobs-housing separation between Tokyo Metropolitan Area and Beijing, and summarizing the experience of Tokyo Metropolitan Area in dealing with the jobs-housing separation and traffic congestion problem deriving from it, as well as the construction of new towns, this paper makes some suggestions for Beijing to deal with the same problems. To coordinate the development of new towns, government should continue to build up the public service facilities in new towns, construct the rail transit networks that connect the city center with new towns, and build the integrated transportation and transfer center in new towns. To decrease the degree of jobs-housing separation, some measures should be taken from the following aspects: to promote industrial development in new towns and guide the population transfer by implementing incentive policy. Public transportation subsidy policy and the development of large residential districts along the rail transit line are also beneficial to ease urban traffic congestion and reduce residents' travel costs.
