This paper presents an agent based model for simulating taxi services in urban areas. The three operation modes (hailing, stand and dispatching) are modeled and tested in the Sioux Falls network. Taxi models presented in the literature are divided into aggregated and equilibrium models, with a very small presence of simulation models.
The different programmed modules are presented together with the behavior rules of the agents. Performance indicators are calculated for each operation mode and compared in terms of driver earnings, user cost and vacant versus occupied time.
