Hi

Just wanted to add: didok.osm.ch pulls the list from opentransportdata
weekly.

About the mapping: the highway=bus_stop or public_transport=platform are
the most important feature. Both are interchangeable and regularly cause
heated debate. Map it as a point besides the road, even though
sovereign_ch mapped everything as lines. Points are still better
supported by data consumers.

I usually don't map the routes, because it is just so much more work.
And the scheme is so complicated. For data consumers I think it would
make more sense to load the routes (not the stops) from
opentransportdata for the foreseeable future. But of course you are free
to map them in OSM.
At the cost of slightly annoying other mappers with tons of relations on
certain ways ;)

If a workshop/gathering is organized, I would gladly present the
didok.osm.ch tool for mapping and QA.

Michael
