  • This paper assesses the potential of ride-sharing for reducing traffic in a city -- based on mobility data extracted from 3G Call Description Records (CDRs), for the cities of Madrid and Barcelona (BCN), and from OSNs, such as Twitter and Foursquare (FSQ), collected for the cities of New York (NY) and Los Angeles (LA). First, we analyze these data sets to understand mobility patterns, home and work locations, and social ties between users. Then, we develop an efficient algorithm for matching… CONTINUE READING
