We present and discuss a specification for a simulation of shared ride trip planning in ad-hoc mobile geosensor networks. In this scenario, the nodes - clients with transportation demand, and hosts with transportation supply - have to plan routes and manage bookings collaboratively. The specification enables to compare different communication strategies for that purpose, with the goal to find an efficient communication strategy that still guarantees planning of acceptable trips in a continuously changing environment. In particular it makes the route planning strategies and booking mechanisms transparent, and shows their dependence on communication strategies.
