Brussels / 4 & 5 February 2023



past, present and the future

OpenTripPlanner is an open source journey planning framework with over 10 years of history. It is constantly evolving, with the version 2.0, including an entirely revamped transit routing algorithm, Multi-Criteria Range-RAPTOR with Destination Pruning, released in the end of 2020. The new algorithm makes it possible to support large national and international deployments. Currently, it powers the national journey planners in multiple countries, including Norway and Finland. At Entur it is used as a basis for systems ranging from ticket sales to physical departure boards at railway stations.

In this presentation, we will take a quick look into the history of OpenTripPlanner, where does it come from, and how has it evolved over the years. We will take a closer look at the recently released OpenTripPlanner version 2.3 and its new features, as well as a look on the roadmap of which functionality will be coming in the next releases.
