A service choice model for optimizing taxi service delivery

Taxi service has undergone radical revamp in recent years. In particular, significant investments in communication system and global positioning system (GPS) devices have improved quality of taxi services through better dispatches. In this paper, the authors propose to leverage on such infrastructure and build a service choice model that helps individual drivers in deciding whether to serve a specific taxi stand or not. The authors demonstrate the value of the model by applying it to a real-world scenario. The authors also highlight interesting new potential approaches that could significantly improve the quality of taxi services.
