Abstract

Ride-sharing is a very promising shared mobility mode that has been shown to produce several social and environmental benefits. However, the exact spatiotemporal features of ride-sharing and its benefits remains unclear. Moreover, compared to its promising benefits, its potential problem has been less explored and discussed. In this thesis, an agent-based simulation model is used to examine the spatial distribution and temporal change feature of ride-sharing’s benefits, such as higher service rate, shorter waiting time, cheaper payment, higher income and higher occupancy. Then, the relationships between ride-sharing’s efficiency and its influencing factors will be analysed, and its possibility in resulting the transport inequality problem will be examined and discussed from a spatiotemporal perspective. The findings of this study will improve the understanding of ride-sharing and provide potential solutions to its problem to develop this promising transportation mode better.
