This paper solved the problem of how to manage the distribution of airport taxis and balance the revenue of long- and short-haul passenger taxis. In this research, we established a multi-objective programming model, which was solved using genetic algorithms to obtain a reasonable distribution scheme in airport with the highest riding efficiency: set up a pick-up location in the middle of the pick-up area, requiring all cars to leave uniformly when fully loaded, and release an average of 78 taxis per batch in every single boarding location. In addition, with the queuing theory we set the basic parameters of the road. Taking the income balance difference as the objective function, we used the VISSIM software to simulate the simulation. Then the short-term “priority” arrangement plan was: Calculate the ratio of the travel time of the short-distance taxi to the distance from the airport to the city center. If the ratio is less than 0.0659, the taxis that meet the conditions are allowed to be given priority after return. The results have some guidance and strong practical significance.
