Comparison of ride pooling and full traffic simulations

Shared pooled mobility has been studied as a stand-alone system and as part of full traffic simulations with vastly different results. While full traffic simulations are unable to find significant amounts of pooling, in direct ride pooling simulations, arbitrarily high values of pooling can be found depending on the system parameters. In this project we want to gain a better understanding of this discrepancy and find parameters such that full traffic simulations achieve pooling.

Pricing and Efficiency

The convenience and efficiency, as well as potentially the price of ride-pooling for the individual user changes with the request rate. We want to develop an agent-based model for individual mode choice decisions and analyze its behaviour with different parameters.
