Demand-Driven Operational Design for Shared Mobility with Ride-pooling Options

This proposal aims to develop a demand-driven approach for shared mobility operations with machine learning and math programming methods. The objective of this approach is to incorporate economic, environment and equity impacts over an entire operational cycle. Both ride-hailing systems (e.g. Lyft) and ride-pooling systems (e.g. UberPool) will be investigated. The developed models will be tested with real-world taxi data including detailed trajectories of vehicles and their loading states at all times.
