Abstract

This work presents an approach in the establishment of a model for dynamic formation and operation of virtual organizations, devoted to the domain of urban transport of people, particularly in the demand-responsive transportation domain. This model adds flexibility in integrating new transportation operators, based on new business opportunities that can be observed during the operation of the transport service. Also, this approach provides mechanisms to assist in maintaining the required minimum levels of quality. A general schema based on Agent Technology that supports the proposed dynamic model is included.
