   Yes, OpenTripPlanner can use OSM data directly to route for cycle, 
foot, and even car traffic - although they don't optimize car routing at 
this time.

   OpenTripPlanner can also include public transit routing and bike 
rental service definitions to plan a multimode trip.  In order to 
include public transit information, a GTFS dataset needs to be created 
to define the routes plans and schedules outside of the OSM data.

   My tool allows the user to define the schedule data based on OSM 
route and stop information.  OpenTripPlanner then consumes those files 
and functions as a multimode router.  I think this will be within the 
current and future license as long as I make the tools available to the 
public.  And also as long as the GTFS dataset never gets uploaded to Google.
