Abstract: Several low- and middle-income countries' (LMICs) emergency transportation systems (ETSs) do not have a centralized emergency number. Instead, they have many independent ambulance providers, each with a small number of ambulances. As a result, ETSs in these contexts lack coordination and ambulances. We examine a few new business models that address the ETS's lack of coordination and ambulances using a dual game-theoretic and data-driven approach. Our results can help entrepreneurs and policymakers in LMICs navigate various tradeoffs involved in improving their countries' ETS.
