Transport networks are the main foundation of continuous development of regions due to its importance to economic, industry, political, and even military. Public transportation network becomes significantly important before and after earthquakes, rescue operations, and displacement and evacuation of victims. Hence, geometric network design and planning of urban transport to reduce potential injuries seem vital. The Kerman city due to its geographical location and being trapped within earthquake faults is vulnerable. In this work, we studied the Kerman urban transport network vulnerability against earthquakes resistance based on criteria Earth and using GIS- AHP by defining the reference database for urban routes, to serve and to drain injuries faster during or after earthquakes. In descriptive tables, the layer of city routes, vulnerability of fields along with route name, identification code, being a one-way or two-way route, classification, and route lengths are documented. When required, by applying network analysis such descriptive tables can be used to find the best route to rescue victims. Results show that the most vulnerabile transport networks in the Kerman city are in regions 1and 3 which is due to accumulation of vulnerable urban facilities and low-resistant ground in these areas. Hence, these regions should be considred as highest priority in planning.
