Article Preview

With the development of public transport system, more and more people rely on public transport to travel. By the means of statistical method, the paper studies the travel temporal distribution of bus and subway and the differences between the weekday and weekend based on the smart card data in Shenzhen, aiming to find the characteristics of transit trips in developed cities of China and provide references for urban transport planning and management. The results of this study show that the number of trips in weekday is 205,000 more than weekend, while the mode in workday and weekend have little difference, where the subway accounts for 80 percent and buses account for 20%; more bus trips in weekday and more subway trips in weekend; the peak is more obvious in weekday than that in weekend.
