Kickstart this! OpenTripPlanner Mobile for iPhone

Help us put transit directions back on the iPhone! Support our Kickstarter to bring transit, walking and biking directions back to iOS6.

The way we get around is changing. We increasingly combine bikes and transit. And in many cities we’re seeing a birth of whole new modes of transport like bike-share and carshare. At OpenPlans we build open source tools that are responsive to these changes and let us imagine new ways of moving.

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.
