This set of commands is for setting up an open trip planner instance for New York City. OTP requires GTFS data and OSM streets data to build a graph, which it uses for trip planning.
Lucky for us, someone here dockerhub has left a nice CLI command to build the graph and run the container, but we need to get the data first.
The data are downloaded on the host machine. For me, this is a digitalocean droplet running ubuntu 14.
First, get GTFS for the New York City Subway from the MTA's downloads page:
Next, get OSM city extract for NYC. Thanks Mapzen!
Finally, run the following docker command:
docker run -it -v $(pwd):/var/otp/graphs opentripplanner/opentripplanner --build /var/otp/graphs --analyst
