Fund a transit app for iOS 6 (project by OpenPlans)

OpenPlans has posted a Kickstarter project to create a universal mobile app for multi-modal travel planning for iOS 6. The app will use an OpenTripPlanner server to generate itineraries and directions.

This is in response to Apple’s removal of built-in transit directions from iOS 6.

With 11 days to go today, $11,909 of $25,000 has been pledged.  Trillium has pledged $250.  Join us as a funder of this App. Read more at KickStarter.
