Not so long ago there was a story about a PT map for a town in a
developing country made with OSM as there is no official data
available. Some countries are spoiled by the availability of official
data.

However, the official data can be wrong. I have place several bus
stops in Belgian and sometimes you see that the official data is wrong
by several hundred meters.
