[Tagging] Public Transport Timetables Proposal RFC

 I do not agree with adding schedules of departures to OSM, where I live
would be almost impossible to maintain, more than 200 bus routes, most with
frequencies less than 20 minutes, with more than 50 stops each route, stops
with 15 different routes , the frequencies vary according to the time of
day, there are routes that have a frequency of 6 minutes, imagine uploading
all that information and that the company decides to change 2 minutes the
schedules, naaaah.
I prefer to use this proposal:
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Interval to indicate
the usual frequency of each route, that would be very useful.

Saludos, Agustín-

> Before voting, I will split up the proposal into three different proposals.

> * Full ferry route timetables.
> * Timetable relations.
