Abstract:The e-hailing system brings about a drastic change in the people’s travel pattern in daily life. High level of e-hailing service quality not only makes the system profitable but also improves the travel experience of customers. The commonly used dispatching framework is that the platform pairs the customers and idle vehicles in each certain time interval (matching time interval) and in a certain radius around each customer (searching radius) according to certain criteria such as distance. For provision of better service quality and enhancement of system efficiency, this paper proposes to jointly optimize the two key important variables of matching time interval and searching radius for dispatching of ride-sourcing vehicles.
