Abstract

In this research, we discuss Car/Ride-Share (CRS), which is a novel concept of Demand Responsive Transportation (DRT) aiming at reducing the uneven distribution of cars in traditional carsharing service and the congestion of cars and people. We model a scenario where CRS service is introduced between a spot (e.g., university, company, etc.) and its nearest train station by a bus company using queueing theory. Then, using an approximation model, we derive the probability density function of the required time (the sum of waiting and traveling times) for the customers considering the road congestion. Further, we show some numerical results of the distribution of the required time and discuss the effectiveness of CRS depending on road congestion. We confirm that the excessive introduction of CRS may be ineffective when the road is congested from the perspective of the required time.
