I took it from the official timetables and generally this line doesn't
suffer too much from congestion. But yes. If the timetable shows bigger
variation in delay between stops over the day, then another method would be

Obviously this is what the operator plans to happen. In practice buses will
run later than their scheduled times. We have access to real time
information for each stop though. I think I'm going to add the direct urls
to the stops themselves.

For the lines/routes a direct link to a url of this kind is probably more
helpful than trying to store all the detail:

But I'm trying to explore how we could add timetable information for
regions where this kind of service doesn't exist.
