MapQuest[1] is a website for maps and directions, similar to Google Maps and Microsoft’s Bing Maps. MapQuest incorporated public transportation directions in February 2011, and uses GTFS as the import format[2]. However, MapQuest has not announced a partner program or provided information about the process and terms for including public transportation data in the transit planning feature. At this time, it appears that all included agencies provide rail services. MapQuest offers participating agencies access to transit directions results through the MapQuest Directions API and MapQuest Open Directions API[3].
