It is not "transfer". it has to be " Transverse" wave.

When the particles of the medium does vibrations simple harmonically perpendicular to the direction of motion of the wave then it is said to be transverse wave.

Even electromagnetic wave too is a transverse wave as its electric and magnetic omponents are normal to the direction of propagation.
