A Before and After Evaluation of Shared Mobility Projects in the San Joaquin Valley

Research Product Type
Research Report
In rural areas, cost-effective transit service is challenging due to greater travel distances, lower population densities, and longer travel times than in cities. UC Davis partnered with the eight San Joaquin Valley Metropolitan Planning Organizations to identify and support development of three innovative mobility pilot concepts for the region.

Dataset: Dynamic Ride-Sharing with HOV Lanes and Meeting Points

Research Product Type
Data
This data is from the project, Dynamic Routing for Ridesharing. The data is randomly generated within grids where each unit of the grid represents a 1-mile by 1-mile square. It is used to generate the origins and destinations of passengers.

Dynamic Routing for Ride-Sharing

Research Product Type
Research Report
The research report explored the use of High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes and meeting points in a ride-sharing system where drivers have their own origin and destination.

Studying the Impacts of the Pandemic and Future Mobility Patterns in California During the Post COVID-19 Recovery

  • Principal Investigator Giovanni Circella, Ph.D.
  • University of California, Davis
Starting in early 2020, the world has experienced huge disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The analyses carried out in this study will shed light on the complicated impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on activity participation and travel patterns, including commuting and non-commuting (e.g., discretionary) trips, and the use of various means of travel.

The Ridesharing Routing Problem with Flexible Pick-up and Drop-off Points

  • Principal Investigator Maged Dessouky, Ph.D.
  • University of Southern California
One of the drawbacks of ridesharing is the extra inconvenience to the drivers and passengers of excessive detours to pick up new riders. The research team proposes to develop an optimization-based solution procedure to solve this problem based on iteratively solving the routing and pick up and drop off points.
