A Rebalancing Strategy for the Imbalance Problem in Bike-Sharing Systems

Peiyu Yi, Feihu Huang, Jian Peng
2019 Energies  
In this paper, we propose a customer-oriented rebalancing strategy to solve this problem. In our strategy, two algorithms are proposed to ensure the whole system is balanced for as long as possible.  ...  In BSS, stations becoming empty or full is the main cause of customers failing to rent or return bikes. Some truck-based rebalancing strategies are proposed to solve this problem.  ...  Pal and Zhang [5] presented a Novel Mixed Integer Linear Program for solving the static rebalancing problem in a free-floating bike sharing system.  ...
