Shared Mobility: The Potential of Ride Hailing and Pooling

  title={Shared Mobility: The Potential of Ride Hailing and Pooling},
  author={Susan A. Shaheen},
Shared mobility with pooled rides is the linchpin for leveraging vehicle automation and electrification to reduce congestion and emissions and to create livable urban communities. The sharing of rides is older than horse-and-buggy travel. Recent innovations make sharing easier, more convenient, and more efficient. Innovative mobility services premised on pooling can lower travel costs, mitigate congestion, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. They also offer travelers more mobility choices…

Ride-hailing, travel behaviour and sustainable mobility: an international review

A discussion of the sustainability and travel behaviour impacts of ride-hailing is provided, based on an extensive literature review of studies from both developed and developing countries. The

Quantifying the Benefits of Ride Sharing

—In unit-capacity mobility-on-demand systems the vehicles transport only one travel party at a time whereas in ridesharing mobility-on-demand systems, a vehicle may transport different travel parties

What is the elasticity of sharing a ridesourcing trip?

Quantifying the Benefits of Autonomous On-Demand Ride-Pooling: A Simulation Study for Munich, Germany

An Autonomous On-Demand Ride-Pooling (AODRP) system, which uses a rather realistic customer-model that is sensitive to waiting times, is introduced and it is revealed that the AODRP system especially reduces traffic on major roads, in which nowadays the highest level of congestion is observed.

The ride-sourcing industry: status-quo and outlook

ABSTRACT Ride-sourcing, the use of private cars to provide on-demand mobility services, first appeared in San Francisco around the year 2010. Since then, transportation network companies (TNCs) who

Quantifying the benefits of vehicle pooling with shareability networks

The notion of shareability network is introduced, which allows to model the collective benefits of sharing as a function of passenger inconvenience, and to efficiently compute optimal sharing strategies on massive datasets, and demonstrates the feasibility of a shareable taxi service in New York City.

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

A more general mathematical model for real-time high-capacity ride-sharing that scales to large numbers of passengers and trips and dynamically generates optimal routes with respect to online demand and vehicle locations is presented.

App-Based, On-Demand Ride Services: Comparing Taxi and Ridesourcing Trips and User Characteristics in San Francisco

The rapid growth of on-demand ride services such as uberX and Lyft, or “ridesourcing,” has prompted debate among policy makers and stakeholders. At present, ridesourcing’s usage and impacts are not
