The advent of on-demand mobility systems is expected to have a tremendous potential on the wellness of transportation users in cities. Yet such positive effects are reached when the systems under consideration enable seamless integration between data sources that involve a high number of transportation actors. In this paper we report on the effort of designing and deploying an integrated system, including algorithms and platforms, that can operate in cities, in an Internet of Things (IoT)-aware fashion. The system was evaluated by enabling/disabling the IoT components of the system, highlighting the necessity of real-time data integration for efficient mobility services.
