Just right this morning I tried to find where PT stops are localized when
making a route, and this is not possible with the transport company website
<https://www.vianavigo.com/#mrq=&id=14&departure=Rue+des+Fusilles+de+Ch%C3%A2teaubriand%2C+Chennevi%C3%A8res-sur-Marne&departureType=StopArea&departureCity=Chennevi%C3%A8res-sur-Marne&departureCoordX=&departureCoordY=&departureExternalCode=49%3A51490&departureCityCode=94430&arrival=Henri+Rouart%2C+La+Queue-en-Brie&arrivalType=StopArea&arrivalCity=La+Queue-en-Brie&arrivalCityCode=94510&arrivalCoordX=&arrivalCoordY=&arrivalExternalCode=49%3A51830&date=17%2F01%2F2017&dateFormat=dd%2FMM%2Fyyyy&sens=1&hour=13&min=50&moreCriterions=false&via=&viaType=&viaCity=&viaCityCode=&viaExternalCode=&train=true&_train=on&rer=true&_rer=on&metro=true&_metro=on&bus=true&_bus=on&tram=true&_tram=on&walkSpeed=1&spcar=%C3%A2&hpx=1&hat=1&L=0&submitSearchItinerary=&ajid=/stif_web_carto/comp/itinerary/search.html_>
(there
is only a schematic map), so I had to use OSM.

However you're right, OSM stand little chance if used by itself for PT
routing and other needs, but can be a big help when associated with other
data sources (like what the folks at CityMapper do).
