We propose improving the performance of bike and car sharing systems by the incorporation of reservation policies. In particular, we study a parking space reservation policy in which the users are required to state their destination upon rental of the vehicle and the system reserves a parking space for them. A Markovian model of the system is formulated. Using this model, we prove that under reasonable demand rates, this policy will improve the performance of the system. This result is confirmed via extensive simulation study of large realistic systems.
