The second day keynote at the GIS in Public Transportation Conference is about an open source project.

The general session keynote address on September 15 is Open Trip Planner: Open Source Multimodal Trip Planner.

The OpenTripPlanner (OTP) project is an international effort to create a flagship open source platform for multimodal trip planning and analysis. As free and open source software, OTP can be freely downloaded, deployed, and modified by anyone, and is optimized for use with open data sources and standards such as OpenStreetMap for base network data and the General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) for transit system data. OTP was established in the summer of 2009 to bring together a number of previously independent open source trip planning projects into a unified effort, and the project and its associated development community have since grown rapidly. In addition to the United States, there are now live OTP deployments in Canada, Poland, India, Spain, Ireland, and Israel. Later this fall, Portland's TriMet will formally launch a beta trip planning application built entirely on the OpenTripPlanner platform and open data sources, marking the first official deployment of a fully open source / open data trip planner by a major U.S. transit agency. This keynote session will provide an overview of OTP's history and current capabilities, including live demos, as well as a roadmap for development of the project going forward.
