Optimising Global Travel
The Supply Side
Transit Exchange XXI
Liverpool June 20th 2013
The Gimp (2006)
Utopia Productions
So what is Texxi all about?
It is a Transit Exchange system
But if you can remember only one
thing from this presentation
The Texxi system is fundamentally about
Congestion Pricing & Roadspacetime
All the taxi / carshare / rideshare stuff
is mere icing on the cake!
It is a search application / algorithm for
demand responsive transit
enabling largescale dynamic real-time
ridesharing
Designed to optimise roadspacetime use
(and thus reduce congestion)
increase vehicle occupancy and reduce
fleet fuel use for the same carrying
capacity
reducing the price of travel for folk
All this for a 0.10 reals fare hike?
People take transport seriously!
while increasing revenues for both vehicle
service operators and the road operator
all without limiting freedoms
As such it is an overall system
that combines several key characteristics,
(operational concepts, algorithms and knowhow)
It sounds like simple taxi hailing..
Taxi Hailing startups
but that is only one application of the system
of several that can come about
It sounds like simple vehicle sharing..
Carshare / Car rental companies
but that is only one part of it
It sounds like on demand ride sharing..
Ridesharing Startups
Lyft
GroupMe
SideCar
ZimRides
Liftshare
yup, you've guessed it - that is only
one application....
!
If you think any of these afore-mentioned
are our competitors, you have not
understood a thing about Texxi
!
They are in fact our potential customers
It's like telling Yorkshire Water that they
should fear the very people who make taps
(faucets)

  32. 32. It does turn out that trying to describe a solution to a combinatorial optimisation problem using genetic algorithms and heuristics to overcome an apparent bottleneck in computational complexity theory is really quite a mouthful

  47. 47. Transport solutions for large scale festivals and events, particularly where parking is limited Mode: Big Event Changing the charging model for destinations
  48. 48. Big Event The stadium becomes an appliance / app on the road system Costs such as policing would now be borne by anyone travelling to the stadium
  49. 49. Corporate Can become an equaliser Virtual Private Travel, enabling staff members, executives and their clients to make use of a luxury fleet of coaches to get to work
  50. 50. Corporate Now even smaller start-up businesses could set-up at business parks and offer their employees the kind of travel perks usually reserved only for corporate behemoths.
  51. 51. Mode: School Run A subscription service to enable people to have their children transported in shared services to schools School-age children could now share direct transport to and from school in appropriate vehicles
  52. 52. Mode: Evening Economy Restaurant patrons and restaurant businesses could benefit from cheaper travel, especially where alcohol is involved
  53. 53. Mode: Tourist A city as a cruise destination becomes an "app". Tourists on visits to a city could visit relatively remote destinations; the revenue shared between the broker and the mode licence buyer (the cruise company)
