Vacant taxi drivers’ cruising behavior to seek the next potential passenger in a road network generates additional vehicle traveled miles, adding congestion and pollution into the road network and the environment. This study aims to employ reinforcement learning to model idle e-hailing drivers’ optimal sequential decisions in passenger-seeking. While there exist a few studies that applied Markov decision process (MDP) to taxi drivers searching behavior, these studies were primarily focused on modeling traditional taxi drivers behavior.
