The best place for GTFS data is imho: http://www.gtfs-data-exchange.com/agencies
It's a meta database that also caches feeds on S3.

You are right that transit data is mostly not open, there are some notable exceptions though.
It would be really interesting to add license meta data to the feeds (after reading their licenses) like "similar to cc-by", "similar to cc-by-nc" etc to highlight the open ones.

I have access to the source repo of gtfs-data-exchange.com and will probably submit an addition at some point.

BTW, I created a German Transit Developers list in May this year: http://lists.okfn.org/mailman/listinfo/transitdevelopers-de
