Theoretic Study of the Windsor Transportation Network

Robert Markovich, University of Windsor


Changes in the form of mass urban transportation seem to affect the size, shape and connectivity of public transportation networks along with the builder and user costs. At the same time variations in centrality can also be observed. This is particularly evident when a more efficient form is substituted in place of an earlier one, as may occur during a change from streetcars to buses. This formula has been applied to the Windsor public transportation network for the years 1893. 1917, 1930, 1937, 1950 and 1968. In each case the results proved that the statements made above are correct.
