Özet

This paper proposes the Fuzzy Logic Model for Location Decisions of Taxicab Stands (FMOTS), which is a decision support system for decision makers, who wish to alleviate taxicab stand complexity in the short to medium term. In this study, an integrated model of GIS and fuzzy logic for taxicab stand location decision is built. The location decisions of taxicab stands in Ankara (Turkey), where organizational problems of taxicab stands slow down a better quality of service, have been examined by this integrated model and their appropriateness has also been evaluated according to the selected parameters.
