Simulating the Ridesharing Economy: The Individual Agent Metro-Washington Area Ridesharing Model (IAMWARM) (version 1.0.0)

This is a ridesharing model (Uber/Lyft) of the larger Washington DC metro area. The model can be modified (Netlogo 6.x) relatively easily and be adapted to any metro area. Please cite generously (this was a lot of work) and please cite the paper, not the comses model.

Release Notes

The model is simple to modify and run.

You’ll need Netlogo 6.x and make sure the directory structure remains the same so that the road system can be accessed by the model.
