A list of public OTP servers is kept in the OTP Server Directory (a Google Docs spreadsheet), and all mobile clients will be able to plan trips automatically using whichever server is appropriate for their current location.
Download the app via the Google Play store.
See the Release Notes for version details.
See our "Issues" page for a full list of planned features, which are labeled with an "Enhancements" tag.
Check out a presentation about this app from the 2011 OpenTripPlanner Workshop in Portland, Oregon (starting on slide 33).

Please be sure to check out the "Testing the app with your own OTP Server" page in the Developer Guide for more details.
After you've tested to make sure OTP Android works with your server, just contact the OTP Developers Group requesting to add your server to the app, and we'll make it available to all OTP Android users by adding it to the OTP Server Directory
If you'd like to get your own version of the app working based on the source code, check out our Developer Guide page.
We'd love to work with other developers who might be interested in knocking off one or two of the above planned features. Please let us know if you're interested in helping out by emailing Sean Barbeau at barbeau@cutr dot usf.edu.
