Abstract
This paper presents the service optimization problem of three different on-demand transit systems operated by taxis and vehicles with semiflexible routes. This problem is aimed at minimizing the total cost of the system that consists of the temporal cost experienced by users and the operating cost incurred by transit agencies. A compact set of estimations of the user performance and operating cost is provided, based on geometric probability. The optimization tool calculates the optimal time head...
