The efficiency of a transportation network is the comprehensive performance index of the network. In order to evaluate the operation situation of the transportation network objectively, the scientific quantitative evaluation method for the network efficiency is very important. In this study, a new quantitative evaluation method for transportation network efficiency is developed, which could evaluate the transportation network performance comprehensively and reasonably. The method is defined in the context of network equilibrium, which could reflect the influences of travel behavior, travel cost, travel demands and link flows, all in equilibrium state, on network efficiency. The computation results compared with a previously proposed one by numerical example, which denote that the new method can quantitatively reflect the influence on the transportation network efficiency induced by traffic flows, user behavior and network structure, which accords with the practical situation.
