Meanwhile, Mentougou District has reopened all public bus routes, as of August 13, according to Beijing News Network.
Repair work has already started on 86 bus stops which were damaged by the floods in Mentougou. Repairs are expected to finish around the end of August.
The floods which first hit the Chinese capital on July 31 were the result of the heaviest rainfall in Beijing for 140 years.
According to official numbers, 33 people died as a result, reports Xinhua. The worst affected areas included parts of west Beijing, notably Mentougou, Fangshan and Fengtai districts.
Beijing has not been the only part of North China to feel the effects of flooding, as Hebei Province and parts of the northeast have also seen devastation and a number of deaths.
The heavy rain came as a result of Typhoon Dussuri, which first hit parts of southeast China’s coastline, notably Fujian, Zhejiang and Guangdong provinces.
And the extreme weather does not end there – on Monday East China was hit by a tornado.
