Surveying that is hard, and the results only valid for half a year or a
year at best.
Copying the information may violate a third party's database right, and
also burdens OSM with dead data that will not be properly maintained.
Therefore I don't think public transport schedules have a place in OSM.
One thing we could investigate is some sort of indication whether a bus
or train route tagged in OSM is frequent, infrequent, or rarely used -
but we'd have to find a classifier for this that is vague enough to not
change twice a year, and precise enough to still be useful (and e.g.
draw "infrequent" lines with a dashed color on a public transport map or
