Simulation for Balancing Bike-Sharing Systems

Yang-Kuei Lin and Francois Liang
Abstract—In this research, we studied the problem of balancing a dynamic bike-sharing system in Taiwan. A simulation model for solving vehicle repositioning problems in bike sharing systems is presented. The objective of this research is to decide the optimal number of vehicles for the repositioning that minimizes customers waiting time.

Index Terms—Simulation, bike-sharing systems, repositioning problem.
