Subway is an important part of Public transportation. To increase the attraction of subway, solving the problem of transfer in the beginning and the end of subway is the most important. The paper points out that how shared bikes make it convenient for the transfer of subway by the trip decision of travelers. According to the comparation between shared bikes and other traffic modes, the paper creates a function model by using the difference value between the travel time of two traffic modes. And the paper indicate that search time is an important factor whether most travels will choose shared bikes or not. And then for the improvement of search time, the paper makes a suggestion at both the government and the corporate level, which is aimed to make it convenient to transfer between shared bikes and subway.
