A practical and applicable taxi-sharing system based on the use of intelligent transportation system (ITS) technologies has been developed in Taipei City. This system is easy for members to use and inexpensive for the service provider to operate. This paper gives an overview of the taxi-sharing service, presents key algorithms for dynamic rideshare matching processes, describes the field trial operation of the system in Taipei Nei-Hu Science and Technology Park and discusses empirical results to provide valuable implications for better taxi-sharing service in the future.
