A multi-agent system is proposed that simulates a network of vehicle rental stations in a city. The paper studies the relationship between the agents and the client, analyses the casuistry associated with possible problems that may be encountered in the absence of transport in a given stop, as well as the decisions that could be taken by the interested party. Subsequently, an architecture capable of being scalable in terms of functionalities and the number of agents involved in it will be proposed. The aim of this paper is to revise the original paper, which is more focused on the possibility of studying a particular city, raising and solving the problems associated with public vehicle sharing services.
