Due to rapid urban development in china, traffic problems are fast becoming considerably serious. In this study, we focus on intercity travel characteristics' research. By investigating the travel characteristics of passengers and the intercity traffic demand forecast, we aim to discriminate the geographical spatial characteristics of departure places and to establish coupling law of city public transportation hubs and urban space which directly connect with the intercity rail station. In future research, we will try to determine theoretical research methods of node location choice in the urban transfer system. We will determine the location of the key hub node and form a transfer service for intercity public network system to improve the efficiency of residential travel.
