Smarter Tools For (Citi)Bike Sharing
Bicycle-sharing systems provide a low-cost, environment-friendly urban transportation option. Efficient management of these systems poses a bicycle rebalancing problem comprising three questions: where do bikes need to be, when must they be there, and how can they get there? I apply operations research techniques to yield practical answers to these questions; my solutions optimize current operations at NYC (Citi)Bike.
