Hello Roland,
you hit the nail on the head: public_transport:stop_area relations are the 
way to go. At least I keep mapping stations/stops with interchange 
possibilities like that. Please do not forget about stop_area_group as well 
as these relations are used to denote interchanging possibilites between 
nearby stop_areas :)
