That would be super helpful for the community in Switzerland! I presented
to a hundred people at SBB and had several more meetings with executives,
but the answer was always that they can't give anybody data, not even if
they pay for it - apart from Google, who has a "special deal". That's why
on Github there are several scrapers for their website plus the solution
that repurposes the access key they ship with their iPhone app to query
their API.

So please absolutely keep us posted :)
