Abstract: With the rapid development of urban rail transit, different new lines will be put into operation every year in the future, and many cities will change from the original single-line operation to the new stage of networked operation. Based on the functional positioning and access location of the new line, this paper studies the types of new lines accessing existing networks, and analyzes the impact of different new line access types on passenger flow and network passenger flow in neighboring stations. By analyzing the composition of rail transit passenger flow after the new line is connected, the reasons for the change of passenger flow after the new line is connected are studied. Finally, the influence law of the new line access on the network passenger flow is studied in combination with the specific case of Shenzhen rail transit.
