Abstract: Demand-responsive transport systems use shuttles to provide door-to-door shared rides for their passengers. The operating cost of the shuttles depends on their pick-up and drop-off locations. It is challenging to design fair cost-sharing mechanisms that offer fare quotes to potential passengers without having any knowledge of future ride requests since different passengers cause different amounts of inconvenience to other passengers. In this extended abstract, we present such a cost-sharing mechanism, called Proportional Online Cost Sharing, and assert that it has desirable properties.
