Hi, I am a student and I am interested in modeling and solving a problem for on-demand pricate car service. I have in mind something like https://www.uber.com/. The variable which I am interested in optimizing is the supply of cars available for the customers.

Any help to identify what kind of problem this is or if there are any other models out there that I could possibly take a look at I will really appreciate it.

Thanks!

You can use the Vehicle Routing Problem Solver with the paired orders to model taxi service.
See the section on Order Pair class:
