Hi Pieter,

> 2. Creating a knowledge center on transit stops

Why yet another data format/storage and not using OpenStreetMap for
that? It is already very easy to contribute to OSM even from mobile
devices etc

And I fear you won't get the big enough community for that undertaking.

What if it is a big station? Or if there are several close bus stations
too? And what is 'close'? ... the distances will be very different ...

I don't think you can and should store that in the data. You have to
calculate it.
