Statistical analysis of bus transportation networks of Istanbul
MetadataShow full item record
Transportation networks such as railway, airport and bus networks are the real-world networks whose inherent statistical properties characterize and differentiate the networks. In order to understand the network characteristics of bus transportation networks (BTNs) of Istanbul, we analyzed its network properties such as degree distributions, clustering coefficients and assortativity. BTNs of Istanbul is defined into three networks as the existence and nonexistence of the metrobus and existence of third- bridge. They are also graphically represented within C-, L- and P-Space topologies that are defined with the connection of the bus stops or routes. Statistical results obtained from network properties reflected the characteristics of the BTNs of Istanbul and give an information about the effects of the metrobus lines and third bridge on the BTNs in Istanbul.
