As an alternative to public financing, PPP (Public Private Partnership) is testified far more than a pure financing method. Aimed to introduce PPP into URT sector, in this thesis I analyzed several possible PPP contract-models which are applicable to deliver URT (Urban Rail Transit) projects in China. Detailed model structures were analyzed, together with allocation of risks (to Public vs. Private sector). In addition, contract-models were analyzed intergraded with land-development thinking. At the end, a comparison of analyzed PPP contract-models was made. As part of conclusion, BTO can be the most possible model applied in China, because it can definitely lighten public financial pressure.
