With the development of rail transit network, the transfer between different subway lines has become an inevitable travel activity for many travelers. Considering the importance of passenger's transfer experience, this study selects the metro transfer time perception from the passenger's point of view as the research object. Based on the perceived and actual transfer data of Beijing subway passengers, the paired-samples T test is used to verify the differences in passengers' perception of transfer. Then this study constructs the ordinal logistic regression model to analyze the influencing factors of transfer time perception, and explores ways to reduce it through scenario analysis. The results show that transfer passengers generally overestimate their transfer time and transfer distance. Additionally, the actual transfer waiting time is a key influencing factor because its reduction will significantly cause the decline in transfer time perception, especially when it is reduced to “3 minutes to 5 minutes”.
