This concept behind this logo design was "infinite roads". Besides the clear references to movement and wayfinding through a transportation network, it (somewhat subliminally) contains the letters O T and P. This design is more geometric and austere than our previous logo, which makes it readily recognizable in a crowd of small app icons, bookmarks, or favicons. It also channels the high modern logos and 1970s supergraphics that were the visual style of public transport for a generation.

The color of the logo in the RGB colorspace is #2179BF.

The name of the OpenTripPlanner project is written in CamelCase: capital letters at the beginning of each word, with no spaces between the words. For the logotype we do not strictly adhere to a standard typeface. The OTP website just uses the CSS declarations font: 30pt helvetica, sans-serif; font-weight: bold;.

The OpenTripPlanner logo was created by Brooklyn-based cartographer and graphic designer Kate Chanba, who has also done extensive work on transit system maps.
