Static repositioning is a well-known and commonly used strategy to maximize customer satisfaction in public bike-sharing systems. Repositioning is performed by trucks at night when no customers are in the system. In models that represent the static repositioning problem, the decision variables are truck routes and the number of bikes to pick up and deliver at each rental station. To simplify the problem, the decision on the number of bikes to pick up and deliver is implicitly included in the truck routes. Two relocation-based local search algorithms (1-relocate and 2-relocate) with the best-accept strategy are incorporated into a variable neighborhood search (VNS) to obtain high-quality solutions for the problem. The performances of the VNS algorithm with the effect of local search algorithms and shaking strength are evaluated with data on Tashu public bike-sharing system operating in Daejeon, Korea. Experiments show that VNS based on the sequential execution of two local search algorithms generates good, reliable solutions.
