An Optimisation Algorithm to Establish the Location of Stations of a Mixed Fleet Biking System: An Application to the City of Lisbon

This paper presents the design and deployment of a bike-sharing system developed for Lisbon. The design of this new service is performed through an heuristic, encompassing a Mixed Integer Linear Program (MILP), that simultaneously optimise the location of shared biking stations, the fleet dimension and measuring the bicycle relocation activities required in a regular operation day. The results obtained for the several tested scenarios provided better insights into knowing how to improve the design and operation of these systems.
