          I agree. However, it would be nice to have it show the route.
          Somehow we can route via bus using GTFS. I wonder if ferry
          routes have a similar spec?</div>

    and there are places (for example, Ocracoke Island on the outer
    banks)<br>
    which are only accessible via ferry and thus can't be routed to by
    apps<br>
    that don't handle ferries.<br>
