In this paper, we propose a novel method called supernode graph structure representation to model the public transport network structure of the London city. Supernode is a set of geographically closely associated nodes. Using the supernode graph structure, the bus transport and the metro transport network structures are analyzed by treating them as independent mono-layer or multi-layer network structures. A method of spatial amalgamation is proposed to integrate the two transport layers. A set of most influential nodes in the network is identified by assigning node weight to each node with respect to both mono-layer and multi-layer analysis. The behavior of these influential nodes is better characterized by categorizing them as either emitter, absorber or neutral zones.
