Abstract

Joint travel and joint activity participation by multiple people are common mobility phenomena. The joint scheduling of activities, routes, modes and location choices is a challenging problem due to the explosion of the possible choice combinations. In a previous paper, the authors have suggested an efficient multi-state supernetwork framework to address the joint travel problem involving a single joint activity. This paper extends this framework to include multiple activities. It turns out that, similar to individual activity-travel scheduling, the selection of activity and parking locations is essential to make this approach feasible. Moreover, the number of departing points affects the scale of the supernetwork. The paper further develops a heuristic approach to select the relevant locations for a two-person joint activity program.
