A quick google search found me the data page of OpenFlights.org. This page has a free (donation request) CSV file with 8000+ airports: LINK.
OpenFlights.org points to OurAirports.com, which provides extensive CSV downloads with data being in the public domain. See their data page.
Regarding contact info for airport management, the FAA provides this info ...
I've used MarineTraffic.com for finding details about yachts and ships I've seen in ports. It's a really cool website.
They also have an API, but, unfortunately, there is no free access.
There is an API option from FleetMon that is mostly-free:
The FleetMon Public API lets software developers create great software apps that are able to display ship ...
OurAirports.com is, in my experience, the best data set publicly available. You may find ICAO or IATA missing or outdated here or there, but it's rare (in my experience). They have also categorized the airports as Main or Small, etc, which is particularly helpful, although for the USA, you can simply filter the ICAO code by 'starts with' K and that gets you ...
For the United States, FuelEconomy.Gov provides a seemingly comprehensive database of vehicles. You can use the API to pull down select vehicles or all vehicles in the database. In is primarily to communicate fuel economy, but a number of other vehicle features are also reported (transmission, engine type, etc.).
Full disclosure: I'm the developer of an R ...
Not sure if my list is better (or worse), because I think it has a lot to do with Andrew's question about national/state levels. If Andrew says it's cool, I'll just have him update his answer with these links:
NCSA Publications & Data Requests
you probably want this guy:
TRAVIC has a list of public transport service APIs that conform to the GTFS standard: http://tracker.geops.ch/
List of API Feeds (searchable and filterable)
EDIT: I found a couple of more-direct links to GTFS feeds internationally:
Transit land: https://transit.land/feed-registry/
Another source of airport information around the world is the UN Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) dataset of United Nations Code for Trade and Transport Locations (UN/LOCODE). These cover major transport terminals: air, sea, land, etc.
A link to the data is here:
I also have a tutorial I wrote awhile ...
Focusing more on the spatial data - but other attributes may be available, you can check:
OurAirports - data available as KML, CSV, with an rss feed of comments describing facilities and current operations
World Aeronautical Database - Not sure how accessible the data is
USSTRATCOM Worldwide Airports - GeoRSS feed; I think the source data is the old ...
Not sure if you need something for the entire nation, but a lot of localities publish versions of this kind of data.
Here is a database of vehicles in the UK.
How Many Left?
Search for statistics about every make and model of vehicle registered in Great Britain. Data comes directly from the Department for Transport, and is regularly updated.
NPR has been developing a crowdsourced database of accessible playgrounds in the US. The data is downloadable as CSV or JSON. The license for the data isn't clearly stated, but the language suggests that they want it to be freely used.
this information tending to differ by region/continent. Maybe you should check which could fitting best to you and/or merge them.
Here you can request an API Key: https://vindecoder.eu/ It is not free.
From NHTSA you can get lots of different car/manufactur information as WMI.
http://www.vinquery.com/ provides good api support.

Not quite all the details you were looking for, but the International Council for the Exploration of the Seas publishes their research vessel platform list as RDF here. You could use the IMO / MMSI numbers as a hopping off point to other data sources for tonnage etc... I've never seen any links to build cost data though.
The idea with these platform codes ...
Marta Open Data
Archived Marta Realtime Data Note: File name times are in UTC not Eastern. Also, the marta train API is particularly flaky so trains randomly disappear and reappear and/or show only a subset of upcoming stations (ie Midtown and Five Points but not North Avenue or Peachtree Center so I’d recommend making a script to clean the data ...

The UK Department for Transport (DFT) provides a traffic data set for the city of London, for 2000 to 2013.
There are two main data sets:
AADF - Annual average daily flow
AADF figures give the number of vehicles that will drive on that stretch of road on an average day of the year. For information on how AADFs are ...
i think this is a good start, but i can't find who authored it. i would take the kml from this map and upload it to geojson.io where you can fiddle and convert it more.

Surprisingly, I can find no mention of license/patent/rights in the Hyperloop Alpha PDF published by Musk in 2013. In a tweet, Musk stated:
I really hate patents unless critical to company survival. Will publish Hyperloop as open source.
I sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org inquiring. I'll update this answer if I hear back.
Just to expand upon @philshem's comment: the OpenStreetMap API can be queried for tags (keys and values) like amenity=parking to find points of interest within a given bounding box or near a certain coordinate: an exemplary query (on overpass turbo, an interactive site to develop and preview queries) yields the following result:
OpenStreetMap hosts GPS Traces that are uploaded by the community. Not all are for driving, but you can probably screen GPS tracks for total distance to find driving ones. Or screen for users that meet a criteria, like this one
Files are downloadable as GPX format, which has many libraries that support parsing and analyzing.

There are free data sets available for distances between ports:
Also you will find some providers that give you distances between ports depending on AIS data like marinetraffic.com.
If you look for an API that gives you the shortest path between two coordinates on sea, there is Aquaplot

MARTA's Open Data Portal is probably the best place to start. It has links to documentation for MARTA's bus and rail APIs as well as data released for their quarterly hackathons. Additionally they have a python library on github for accessing the APIs.
Additional transit information can be found through the municipal.systems API.
