In this paper, we propose an optimization model to select the charging locations of an automated electric taxi (AET) system. The service provided by this AET system is a seamless door-to-door service connected to the train station, which helps improve the last mile transport. We individualize the vehicles instead of treating them as a flow to track the remaining battery level of each AET. Two types of charging are considered containing depot charging with lower charging speed and opportunity charging with higher charging speed. We formulate a mixed-integer programming model with linear constraints to optimize the locations of depot charging and opportunity charging according to the objective function of maximizing the number ofsatisfied requests. The proposed model is applied to the case study city of Delft, the Netherlands with the travel demand generated by the Delft Zuid train station. Results show that the charging scheme with two types of charging can provide sufficient electrical energy for shared use AETs to serve passengers’ last mile travel demand.
