OSRM has been down, triggered this redundancy implementation.

the :mapbox symbol passed to API should probably be more dynamic so that wrapper can be changed without modifying the code

I'm not very happy with mapbox, it's not free nor open source. On the positive side, they probably use OSRM in the back, as it's the same API, so few code change needed

EDIT: see comment in thread

Mapbox actually is pretty cool company; they publish a lot of their code open source and they even pay for OSRM development currently.

Lemme know if you want to use MapBox APIs, you can piggyback on Hitchwiki's account.

@simison great, I did not know!

I made myself an account on Mapbox anyway, so I'm fine for now.
