Why isn't public transport among the transport options at https://www.openstreetmap.org/directions? What's the difference between GraphHopper and OSRM?

Chiefly, because OpenStreetMap doesn't store timetables.

But even for those areas/services where service is sufficiently frequent that timetables aren't necessary, no-one has stepped up to provide an implementation. The routing services on osm.org are not run by the OpenStreetMap Foundation, they're externally provided services which use OSM data.

I'm sure that if someone were to provide (say) a worldwide OpenTripPlanner instance that could be hooked into osm.org, based on OSM data, then it would be considered for inclusion on the front page.

Only if it was providing value to OSM mappers doing mapping. A general-purpose routing engine using mostly non-OSM data would probably not be included.

Good point, I should have made that explicit! Edited.
