Transit App for iOS 6 and Beyond by OpenPlans With the announcement of iOS version 6, Apple has dropped Google Maps and with it, previously built-in support for travel directions via public transit. With your support, OpenTripPlanner Mobile, an open source application developed by OpenPlans will put transit back on the iPhone. Initially, we will offer coverage for almost all transit systems in North America (see coverage details below). The app will also add new features that Google Maps didn’t have, allowing users to combine walking, bikes, bike-share and transit together, finding the fastest and most efficient trips regardless of mode of transportation. The more funds we raise the more features and data coverage we'll be able to add. Your donation is tax-deductible and supports our work building software that makes cities better. The way we get around is changing. We’ve spent the last three years creating a trip planning engine, OpenTripPlanner, in partnership with transit agencies and software developers around the globe. Yes!
