Beginning with Apple’s iOS 6, transit routing directions are not available within the default maps application on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch [1]. However, this default Maps application will link to 3rd party applications that provide transit routing information. To enable iOS device users to continue planning transit trips, the non-profit organization OpenPlans has developed code for a transit planning app for all iOS devices. The built application, called Joyride, has not been released, but source code will be released. The application will require for a back-end routing server to be set up. The effort to create the application is currently described on the crowd-sourced funding site Kickstarter [2].
