The development of the sharing economy has made carsharing the main future development model of car rental. Carsharing network investment is enormous, but the resource allocation is limited. Therefore, the reasonable location of the carsharing station is important to the development of carsharing companies. On the basis of the current status of carsharing development, this research considers multiple influencing factors of carsharing to meet the maximum user demand. Meanwhile, the constraint of the limited cost of the company is considered to establish a nonlinear integer programming model for station location of carsharing. A genetic algorithm is designed to solve the problem by analyzing the location model of the carsharing network. Finally, the results of a case study of Lanzhou, China show the effectiveness of the establishment and solution of the station location model. View Full-Text
