Commuting is an indispensable part of modern human lives. While modern cities offer various modes of transportation, considered separately, none of them is both efficient, i.e., sustainable, and convenient. A taxi service is convenient, in a sense, due to door-to-door service, but is inefficient since it usually serves one customer only. Demand responsive ride pooling (DRRP) with minibuses is more efficient, but leads to undue competition with line services (LS), which provide even better pooling (average number of passengers per vehicle) but are less convenient due to fixed routes and stops. A combination of both modes, DRRP and LS, may provide an ideal solution but is challenging to organize. Here we derive conditions for efficient and convenient transportation for a bi-modal service based on a simple square-grid geometry. We relate the optimal mesh size, i.e., distance between stations, to external parameters like passenger density and traveling behavior. We also compare the carbon footprint of the bi-modal service with private cars so as to measure it’s efficiency.
