I thought several PT companies are experimenting with OSM. See e.g.
[1] which is a presentation by the French Transilien company on indoor
mapping of their railway stations at the last State of the Map. I
believe their is also a German company doing similar things.

There are some multi modal route planner (sorry no links) that combine
bus/bike/train routes. Something no PT provider can offer as they only
have their own data. This is also mentioned in the video [1].
