  Taxis in Beijing.

If you want flexibility, one good option is to take taxis.

Fare begins at RMB 10,00 (US$ 1,2) with additional RMB 1,30 / km for the basic taxis (red coloured, usually small taxis), or RMB 1,60 / km for middle range taxis (green or blue cars with a golden stripe).

There is still a higher range of taxis, normally black sedans without any sign. They are around 50% more expensive than the middle range ones.

Be aware that you may also be caught in a tourist trap in the main tourist attractions...
