Integrating HTS and Social Media Data to Improve the Quality of OD Matrix

Collecting effective data is a fundamental step in developing transport networks and related research. Social media have become an emerging source of data for traffic analyses. In this study, we demonstrate that the function of a city influences the utility of social media data in travel demand models by generating models for eight US citiesContinue reading “Integrating HTS and Social Media Data to Improve the Quality of OD Matrix”

An Integrated Supply-Demand Approach to Solving Optimal Relocations in Station-Based Carsharing Systems

The dominant challenge in one-way carsharing systems is the vehicle stock imbalance. Previous studies have proposed relocation approaches to handle it using optimization and simulation models. However, these models do not consider the interdependence between supply and demand in carsharing systems. In this study, we develop an integrated optimization model to link supply and demandContinue reading “An Integrated Supply-Demand Approach to Solving Optimal Relocations in Station-Based Carsharing Systems”
