Recently, electric vehicles (EVs) have been introduced to the ride-sourcing market, raising interesting issues on the interaction between EVs and the ride-sourcing market. This study proposes an analytical framework for understanding drivers’ behavior in the ride-sourcing market with both EVs and gasoline vehicles (GVs). A time-expanded network is established to sketch out the schedules of working periods of both EV and GV drivers, and recharging schedules of EV drivers under the user equilibrium. The impacts of operating strategies of ride-sourcing platforms and electrical power suppliers on the benefits of different stakeholders are investigated both analytically and numerically.
