Post Mortem III · Mapzen
Because we built everything like this, others joined in. They trusted that we were working on permanent infrastructure not tied to a specific company. Our gazetteer, routing engine, geocoder, tile server, and rendering engines were all set up as independent Github orgs with liberal licenses to ensure their durability. Others contribute to them, and their reach is wide. You’re using Mapzen’s legacy when you drive certain cars, play popular AR games, or interact with location data all over the Internet. Neither the shutdown of our hosted services nor the dissolution of the team can change this.

Mapzen Alternatives · Mapzen
Mapzen will cease operations at the end of January 2018, and its hosted APIs and all related support and services will turn off on February 1, 2018.

Your two options are to switch to another hosted API that offers similar functionality, or to run your own servers with the open-source projects that powered Mapzen services. We list several options below to make this as easy as possible.
