Resilience of Public Transport Networks Against Attacks

Topics: Transportation,

This paper, published in the European Physical Journal, studies how city public transportation networks behave while under attack using case studies from fourteen major cities across the globe. It investigates the characteristics of these transportation networks, including trends in vulnerability, and their correlation with the system's overall resilience during a crisis. Results were also compared with predictions related to percolation theory on networks. The paper suggests a continuation of the research, in particular to analyze public transportation resilience using different graphical representations.
