Abstract

Carsharing is a shared-use vehicle model that allows users to rent cars for short periods of times. There are different types of systems according to their operational properties. In round-trip carsharing systems users are expected to return vehicles to their pickup locations. One-way systems relax this restriction and allows users to return cars to different drop-off locations. In station-based systems, there are designated parking locations to which vehicles should be returned. Free-floating systems relax this restriction and allow users to park vehicles to any legal parking locations within a designated area.

In this research we are dealing with operational planning decisions in station-based one-way electric carsharing systems with dynamic relocations. Different than the previous work in literature, we introduce spatial and temporal flexibility to the system by considering multiple pick-up and drop-off times and locations at different prices to increase total profit of the system.
