Research on the Static Rebalancing Problem in Bicycle Sharing Systems

Bicycle sharing systems are a kind of green transportation, which plays an important role into reduce carbon emissions. But the problem of “difficult to rent or return a bike” in actual operation has restricted the development of bicycle sharing systems. In order to solve this problem, this paper carried out research on single depot multi-vehicle static bicycle rebalancing problem with time windows (SDMVSBRPTW), and established a mathematical model, which the objectives are minimize the redistribution costs, and maximize the customer satisfaction. Then LINGO was used to verify the accuracy of the model. The computational results show that the model is suitable for the rebalancing optimization of bicycle sharing systems. This study has a certain pragmatic value for bicycle sharing system to improve the operation efficiency, and to reduce operating costs.
