The Pacific Speed of Growth: How Fast Can It Be and What Determines It?

Yongzheng Yang, Hong Chen, Shiu raj Singh, Baljeet Singh
2013 IMF Working Papers  
On balance, policy-related factors, together with geography-related disadvantages, have led to growth rates in PICs that are much lower than in other small states.  ...  This study aims to test within a relatively homogeneous group of small states what differentiates the growth performance of Pacific island countries (PICs) from their peers.  ...  Given this, the same set of regression coefficients from the previous section can be used to predict growth rates based on the level of the determinants in the two subperiods.  ...

Taxi-Hailing Apps

Yuexin Xiong, Guozhen Zhao
2016 Proceedings of the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society Annual Meeting  
Further research is needed to develop a better understanding of taxi mobility and e-hailing services..  ...  However, with the advent of e-hailing taxi services, a growing number of scholars have attempted to uncover the impacts of this emerging mode of travel on human mobility and urban dynamics.  ...  This model can be used to predict the effects of adjusting the size of the taxi fleet and customer travel demand on the distance and time for which the customer needs to search.  ...

Inventory pooling technique from the car rental industry: now and in the autonomous future

Kuangnen Cheng, Byunghoon Jin
2021 International Journal of Business Environment  
The research utilises live pricing data from the US car rental and ridesharing industry to detect: 1) how players from the car rental industry apply pricing strategy to reduce inventory shuttling activities  ...  and balance the demand with supply; 2) whether the current pooling model can be transferred into the future assuming the business model and pricing strategy of the future robotaxi market is similar to  ...  In the near future, a study focusing on one single metropolitan area, such as San Francisco pool's 177 locations, may be considered, so a better inventory pooling model can be formulated. is significant  ...

Is ride-hailing doomed to monopoly? Theory and evidence from the main U.S. markets

Bruno Carballa Smichowski
2018 Revue d économie industrielle  
Riders will not hesitate to switch to a competing platform if prices and waiting time are lower, and drivers will do the same if more and/or better-paid rides can be obtained.  ...  Second, it can use its dominance over ride-hailing markets to make profits in other markets, even while keeping prices low enough to deter entrance in ride-hailing markets.  ...

Success determinants of on-demand microtransit services: a case study of Kussbus in Luxembourg

Jiajing He
2021 Zenodo  
An empirical case study is conducted on the historical ride data of Kussbus, an on-demand shuttle bus service for cross-border workers in Luxembourg and its Belgium border area.  ...  Analyzing the success determinants of on-demand microtransit services and understanding historical user rides provide valuable insights for operators to improve further operation.  ...  I would like to express my special appreciation to my co-supervisor Dr. Tai-Yu Ma. This thesis would not have been written successfully without his continuous supervision and valuable feedback.  ...

Cost-based analysis of autonomous mobility services

Patrick M. Bösch, Felix Becker, Henrik Becker, Kay W. Axhausen
2018 Transport Policy  
Using a comprehensive analysis of the respective cost structures, this research shows that public transportation (in its current form) will only remain economically competitive where demand can be bundled  ...  In particular, this applies to dense urban areas, where public transportation can be offered at lower prices than autonomous taxis (even if pooled) and private cars.  ...  The authors would like to thank (in alphabetical order) Hans-J€ org Althaus, Nick Beglinger, Ralf Bosch, Peter Brandl, Frank Bruns, Walter Casazza, Kilian Constantin, Hauke Fehlberg, Martin Fellendorf,  ...
