MSc Thesis: Can shared rides compete with public transport?

MSc Thesis: Can shared rides compete with public transport?

In this graduation project you will use a shareability algorithm recently developed at the Smart Public Transport Lab, where trip demand for Amsterdam and other Dutch cities is matched into shared rides.

You will:

  • Use and develop state-of-the-art shareability algorithms, open source PT route planners, transit network design algorithm and techniques.
  • Analyze and compare two dataset to understand how shared rides may compete with PT.
  • Find spatial and temporal patterns, identify target socio-demographical groups and try to induce a critical mass needed for shared rides to become profitable.
  • Identify areas and relations with high potential for shared rides and target operations there.
  • Determine if and how shared rides can become an appealing alternative in Amsterdam.
