    IEMS Seminar: Citi Bike: Planning through a Combination of Continuous, Discrete, and Simulation Optimization

    Department of Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences

    11:00 AM M228, Technological Institute

    EVENT DETAILS

    Shane G. Henderson

    Abstract:
    Cornell’s School of Operations Research and Information Engineering has been working with the bike-sharing company Citi Bike since Citi Bike began operations in New York City in 2013. We provide data analysis and advice about strategy and operations, not just to Citi Bike, but also to its parent company Motivate that operates several bike-sharing programs around the USA. I’ll describe some of our modeling work with Citi Bike, focusing on a suite of models (not just simulation models) that informs the decision about where to position both racks and bikes around the approximately 700 stations in NYC.

    Joint work with Daniel Freund, Nanjing Jian, Eoin O’Mahony and David Shmoys
