Urban rail stations play an important role in passenger distribution and connectivity intervals in the network. How to effectively and reasonably evaluate their importance in the network is the key to optimizing the urban rail network structure and reducing operational risks. Taking the site as the research object and considering the topology, passenger volume, and passenger flow correlation of the urban rail network, the index of citation index is used to define node importance metric based on the h-index. Furthermore, the method of calculating the importance degree of urban rail transit network nodes based on h-index is proposed. The validity of the method is verified by the data of Beijing urban rail network in 2016, and the results are compared with the existing central index based on the network topology characteristics.
