Undeniably one of the most pressing challenges of our time is the question how human mobility can be made sustainable. A possible way to reduce environmental impact is to increase the average ratio of the number of persons being transported to the number of vehicles utilized for the task. This has the potential to not only reduce the impact during operation (i.e. burning of fossil fuels) but also during manufacturing of the vehicles. On a public transport scale this type of operation is termed ride pooling: Persons expressing a desire to travel in similar spatial directions get assigned to a common vehicle, reducing the parallel travel of multiple vehicles.
To predict the key parameters of demand responsive ride pooling systems and to estimate their market potential a corresponding mean field theory has been developed , which is investigated here by means of computer simulation of such systems .
