FYI - I've finished the testing for my local instance of OpenTripPlanner
 and it's ready to go live.
The code I used to create the GTFS from OSM data is in SVN:
http://svn.openstreetmap.org/applications/utils/export/OSM2GTFS/ - still
very fragile, and not very informative when it doesn't like something
about the route data.
I discovered that it is very helpful to enter alternate names to help
with search, for example:
If "East Bay Technical College" is referred to as "Bay Tech" - "Bay
Tech" should be in alt_name or loc_name. I don't believe the search
algorithm should be expanded to return more hits in this case.
I also included the tool to visualize travel times.
