It should be on the app store, type in OpenTTD into search.
If its not there, then I don't know where else to suggest.

OpenTTD does not have an official iPad port (nor any other small device).

I know people have worked on a port, but I wouldn't know where to get it. In my experience, it doesn't work btw. You miss all the buttons you have on a PC to operate the game. It is not really build for such devices ;)
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

I should not be in the AppStore. Unless Apple changes its policy for which programmes are allowed OpenTTD (and all other programmes which are under the GPL) are excluded from the AppStore as its TOS are incompatible with the license requirements. Thus they removed all such programmes from the AppStore. It would be easy for Apple to change the TOS accordingly.

In other words, you need a jailbroken iDevice and then download and install manually. Check the thread on tis subjedt in the development section.
