In transverse wave particles have their motion perpendicular from the direction of the wave.
In longitudnal wave particles have their motion along the direction of the wave.

  Longitudnal wave                                                      Transverse wave

In LW the particles of the medium                      In TW the particles of the medium
vibrates parallel to the direction of                    vibrate perpendicular to direction of 
propagation of wave.                                       propagation of wave

It travels as compression and                            It travels as  Crest & Trough.
rarefaction

It travels in solid,liquid and gas.                        It travels in solids and on the surface                                                                          of   liquids.
Ex:sound wave                                                   Ex: light wave
