    Pull automated build from Docker Hub:

    $ docker pull cartography/osrm-backend-docker

    or build from GitHub:

    $ docker build -t="cartography/osrm-backend-docker"

    or you can clone & build:

    $ git clone  
    $ docker build -t="cartography/osrm-backend-docker" osrm-backend-docker/


Run it:

docker run -d -p 5000:5000 cartography/osrm-backend-docker:latest osrm label "http://your/path/to/data.osm.pbf"


  • -d - run container in background and print container ID
  • -p 5000:5000 - publish a container port to host
  • osrm - go via entrypoint script, w/o osrm keyword - classic mode
  • label - your label of OSM data
  • url - link to OSM data in PBF format

For example:

docker run -d -p 5000:5000 --name osrm-api cartography/osrm-backend-docker:latest osrm California ""

Start OSRM Frontend

docker run -d --link osrm-api:api --name osrm-mos-front --restart=always -p 8080:80 cartography/osrm-frontend-docker

You must --link osrm-frontend container with osrm-api with api tag. Or use API_PORT_5000_TCP_ADDR and API_PORT_5000_TCP_PORT variables to set host and port of the api.
