  • Patent number: 11112255
    Abstract: A network computer system operates to receive service requests from multiple requesters. Based at least in part on a proximity between the current locations of a first and a second requester, the system can match the first service request and the second service request by (i) selecting a pickup location for the first and second requesters, (ii) transmitting rendezvous information to the computing devices of the first and second requesters, (iii) determining an estimated time interval for each of the first requester and the second requester to arrive at the pickup location, and (iv) selecting a transport provider to service both the first transport request and the second transport request, based at least in part on the pickup location, a current location of the transport provider, and the estimated time interval for each of the first requester and the second requester.

  • Publication number: 20210020047
    Abstract: A computing system computes a timing interval between high-capacity vehicles (HCVs) for each HCV corridor within a geographic region to control rates of HCVs entering and exiting each of the HCV corridors. For each of the HCV corridors, the computing system schedules a first HCV to provide a transport service along the corridor beginning at a first starting time, transmits first schedule data for the corridor to the first HCV, schedules a second HCV to provide the transport service along the corridor beginning at a second starting time after the first starting time according to the timing interval for the corridor, and transmits second schedule data for the corridor to the second HCV.

  • Publication number: 20210010817
    Abstract: A multi-leg transport system receives a transport request and determines a number of transfer locations between the origin location and the destination. The system selects a first provider to transport the user from the origin location to a transfer location and remotely monitors the position of the user as the user travels to the transfer location. In response to determining that the travel time to the transfer location is within a threshold, the system selects a second provider to transport the user from the transfer location to either the next transfer location or the destination for the transport request.

  • Publication number: 20200393256
    Abstract: A computing system can detect high capacity vehicles (HCVs) coming online to provide transport services. The computing system monitors transport demand for HCV corridors throughout a geographic region. Each HCV corridor comprises a plurality of possible rendezvous locations and a plurality of possible routes that can be traveled by individual HCVs through the HCV corridor, as opposed to having fixed routes with fixed stops. The computing system can determine a schedule for each HCV corridor, and monitor supply flow of HCVs traveling through each HCV corridor. Based on (i) the transport demand, (ii) the schedule, and (iii) the supply flow of the HCVs for each of the HCV corridors, the computing system can match the HCV with a specified HCV corridor, and transmit match data indicating a start zone of the matching HCV corridor to the computing device of the HCV.

  • Publication number: 20200356911
    Abstract: A computing system can assign a transport request to a high capacity vehicle (HCV) corridor of a plurality of HCV corridors, where the HCV corridor is associated with a plurality of possible rendezvous locations and a plurality of possible routes that can be traveled by individual HCVs. The computing system can determine, from the transport request of the requesting user, an optimal pick-up location from the plurality of possible rendezvous locations of the HCV corridor for an HCV to rendezvous with the requesting user.

  • Patent number: 10731998
    Abstract: A network computer system operates to receive a plurality of service requests over a given time interval, where individual service requests specify a respective target destination and a current location of a respective requester device. For each service request, the network computer system arranges a pooled transport service for the corresponding requester by selecting a service start location, and instructions for enabling the requester to travel to the service start location. The network computer system may select the service provider based on a variety of considerations, including the service start location, the current location of the corresponding service provider, and the determined time interval.
