[Imports] National Transit Map (US)

The (US) Department of Transportation recently[1] released the National 
Transit Map (http://www.rita.dot.gov/bts/ntm), a compilation of transit 
information from a wide list of regional transit providers. I'm not 
proposing an import myself, but I want to make sure it's widely known 
and I wonder if anyone is looking into an import of it.

It appears the data collected (or at least presented on the online map) 
is transit stops only, with no route information.

Not all transit providers are represented, though the press release says 
"74 percent of the top 50 agencies, and approximately one-third of all 
urban transit agencies with fixed route service".

This seems like a valuable data set if we can use it.
