Abstract: We analyze the transferability of collective transportation line networks (CTLN) with the help of hypergraphs, their linearization, and connectivity measures from Complex Network Theory. In contrast to other existing works in the literature, where transferability is analyzed at a topological level, we are also concerned with passenger system level, introducing data on the travel patterns. This will allow us to have a more complete view of the functioning of the transfer system of a CTLN.

Keywords:  Collective transportation line networks, transferability measures, passengers demand, complex networks, hypergraphs.
