A minimalist FOSS public-transportation router/tool suite

Mobroute is a general purpose FOSS public transportation router, enabling people to e.g. plan their trips around town. It is a Go library and command line interface (CLI) that works by directly ingesting timetable data from transit agencies themselves (in GTFS format, obtained via the Mobility Database). After this data has been fetched, route planning can be done offline, on one’s own device. Overall, Mobroute aims to offer an open source framework for integrating data-provider-agnostic GTFS public transit capabilities (integrated GTFS ETL, GTFS multisource support, and routing algorithm) into applications to get users from point A to point B via public transit, without comprising privacy or user freedoms.

In addition to the Mobroute Go library & CLI, the related subproject, the Transito app offers fully integrated routing functionality on mobile devices (Android & Linux) utilizing Mobroute's Go library.
