On-demand high-capacity ride-sharing via dynamic trip-vehicle assignment

"Ride-sharing services are transforming urban mobility by providing timely and convenient transportation to anybody, anywhere, and anytime. These services present enormous potential for positive societal impacts with respect to pollution, energy consumption, congestion, etc."

Key findings

"We show that 98% of the taxi rides currently served by over 13,000 taxis could be served with just 3,000 taxis of capacity four."

"If a maximum delay of 5 min or more (comparable to the time spent retrieving a car from parking) is allowed, higher-capacity vehicles (i) increase the service rate significantly, (ii) reduce the waiting time, and (iii) reduce the distance traveled by each vehicle."

"Vehicle capacity and fleet size depend on quality of service requirements and demand."
