Despite its importance in urban transport, the taxi industry has drawn limited academic interest and has successfully resisted systemic changes and improvements in the past. For example, several New York City mayors had vowed to improve the system over the course of a number of decades but the industry remained essentially the same since the 1900s (Li 2006). However, it is of crucial interest to improve the efficiency of taxi dispatch systems for taxi companies 7 See Case 1:12-cv-00784-LAK, Aka and Carniol v.

When two passengers are found at the same starting point wishing to be delivered to the same end point, both at the same time, the taxi is able to pick up and deliver both. , the start and end points do not necessarily have to match exactly, or may just lie along the route of the longer trip. In any case, we first show via simulations that the current taxi system may be optimized to solve the demand more efficiently with a cab capacity of two. It is then natural to expand the cab capacity to arbitrary larger values.
