A MULTI-ORIGIN/DESTINATION TAXI SYSTEM. VOLUME 1, EXECUTIVE SUMMARY. PRELIMINARY DESIGN FOR SINGLE-ORIGIN/DESTINATION TRIPS
The long range goal of this research project is to design, develop and implement an experimental demand responsive multi-origin/destination taxi system. The overall research program consists of information acquisition, studies of deployment and allocation of equipment, development of pricing mechanisms and operating procedures. The work is divided into three stages: (1) Preliminary design for single-origin/destination trips; (2) prototype design for shared rides; and (3) experiments and evaluation of technology, pricing mechanisms and operating procedures. Although development of the experimental system initially involves only standard taxi services, the resulting hardware and software packages are applicable to other types of paratransit systems. Hence, the entire project is referred to as the Ride-Shared Vehicle Paratransit System or RSVP System. This report contains the results of the first stage of RSVP System development.
