As taxis play an increasingly important role in urban traffic system, the research on the supply and demand of taxis and the design of an optimal model of taxis supply has an importantly practical significance. In this paper, we used the traffic bureau data of Guangzhou, and determined the rate of empty driving as the index to establish the model. Nonlinear programming method was uesd to establish the optimal model of taxis quantity to meet the maximum income and maximum passenger satisfaction. Finally we got the optimal number of taxis was 37537.59
Key words: Taxi / supply and demand / nonlinear programming
