Smart cities will provide enhanced monitoring of crucial infrastructure resources, connectivity to users and advanced information services. Thanks to gathered data the quality of traditional services and infrastructures will be improved, and further services can emerge, such as novel urban transportation services. This paper devises a solution that enforces the cooperation between mobile devices and cloud infrastructures with the aim to bring public transportation where the people need it. Thanks to smart phones, sensing user locations, a request for transportation vehicles can be sent to a cloud-based intelligence, which filters and serves requests according to available transport routes, and their adaptation to user needs. Then, the available transportation vehicles will be timely alerted to operate accordingly.
