Analyzing people mobility and identifying the transportation mode used by them is essential for cities that want to reduce traffic jams and travel time between their points, thus helping to improve the quality of life of citizens. Mining this type of data, however, faces several complexities due to its unique properties. In this work, we propose the use of Information Theory quantifiers retained from the Ordinal Patterns (OP) transformation, for transportation mode identification. As an initial exploration, our results show that OP satisfactorily characterizes the trajectories. Moreover, in this scenario, the characteristics of OP transformation can be advantageous, such as its simplicity, robustness, and speed.
