Many real-world networks are demonstrated to either have layered network structures in themselves or interconnect with other networks, forming multilayer network structures. In this survey, we give a brief review of recent progress in traffic dynamics on multilayer networks. First, we introduce several typical multilayer network models. Then, we present some mainstream performance indicators, such as network capacity, average transmission time, etc. Moreover, we discuss some optimization strategies for improving the transmission performance. Finally, we provide some open issues that could be further explored in the future.
