This paper presents Mobility-On-Demand (MoD) scenarios relying on lightweight autonomous and connected vehicles to ease commuting in large pedestrian areas and intermodal hubs. In particular, we discuss the case of the EPFL campus as an example of a large pedestrian area and the case of the main Zurich train station as an example of a large intermodal hub. These two scenarios help to investigate the potential benefits and the implementation challenges of innovative lightweight autonomous and connected vehicles combining indoor and outdoor modalities. They also highlight the need to further develop the integration of mobile apps and transportation means for a broader adoption of alternative commuting behaviors. A detailed review of the state of the art is included. It presents current initiatives and solutions related to MoD services.
