ABSTRACT
The rise of Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) over the last decade has significantly disrupted the taxi industry. Studies have shown that taxi ridership has plummeted, and their capacity utilization rates are lower than 50% in five major U.S. cities. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has dealt a severe blow to the already struggling taxi industry. To monitor the evolution of the taxi industry and its impacts on society, our study evaluates changes in the utilization rates, fuel consumption, and emissions among Chicago taxis, using taxi data with rich information on trip profiles from pre-pandemic and pandemic times. Our findings indicate that the taxi utilization rate decreased during the pandemic. While fuel consumption and emissions per kilometer decreased thanks to the reduced traffic during the pandemic, the overall fuel consumption and emissions increased due to increased deadhead travel. The methods developed in this study can be applied to monitor and evaluate the impact of future disruptive events on urban mobility and transportation systems more effectively. By utilizing mobility data to better understand transportation systems, we can develop more efficient, sustainable, and resilient mobility solutions for smart cities. © 2023 ACM.
