Abstract: Trip duration is an important metric for the management of taxi companies, as it affects operational efficiency, driver satisfaction and, above all, customer satisfaction. In particular, the ability to predict trip duration in advance can be very useful for allocating taxis to stands and finding the best route for trips. A data mining approach can be used to generate models for trip time prediction. In fact, given the amount of data available, different models can be generated for different taxis. Given the difference between the data collected by different taxis, the best model for each one can be obtained with different algorithms and/or parameter settings. However, finding the configuration that generates the best model for each taxi is computationally very expensive. In this paper, we propose the use of metalearning to address the problem of selecting the algorithm that generates the model with the most accurate predictions for each taxi. The approach is tested on data collected in the Drive-In project. Our results show that metalearning can help to select the algorithm with the best accuracy.
