© 2018 IEEE. Existing ridesharing services have focused on on-demand trip matching, which resembles traditional taxi dispatching. This may encourage more private vehicles on the road, which aggravate traffic congestions in peak hours rather than alleviating them. We propose CommuteShare, a novel ridesharing service for daily commuters that encourages long-term ridesharing among commuters with similar commuting patterns, to increase the traffic efficiency in peak hours. We first identify commuting private vehicles (CPVs) from traffic records and model their commuting patterns. We then design a dynamic model to formulate the intention level of a CPV driver to offer a ride based on the spatio-t..
