I have been working on a proof-of-concept implementation of support for public transit routing in Maps (https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=755808).
For testing locally on my development machine I have been using the data as listed in https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Maps/Resources/GTFSFeeds Running with this list of feeds requires about 8-9 GB RAM. On a real server with more coverage, it would probably need a significantly larger amount of physical RAM.
A bit related, I have also created a (pretty crude for now) side-project to keep the OTP instance up-to-date with data from the GTFS feeds: https://github.com/mlundblad/otp-updater
Some additional things will be needed (such as webserver fronting OTP providing HTTPS access, and restricting access to OTP's management features, using HTTP PUT, DELETE et.c.)
