This information, if available, should go on the the ferry/rail/bus route
relations, as these means of transport are not exclusive to the bike route,
at least in most cases, and therefore should have their own relations
independently of bicycle travel.

In more general terms, this intermodal transport problem is a big black
hole in OSM in general. The commercial competition is spending a lot of
money in that sector. I am not sure we can or even want to compete with
