I've been thinking for some time about putting together a database of
methods to access public transport schedules for places around the
world, it could be python code snippets or even better javascript code
or something else.  The public transport operator in my city has a
quite bad API but it can be queried for schedules with some effort and
works, and apparently there's something like that on national level
for UK judging from http://www.öpnvkarte.de/naptan.html  I wanted to
add something similar to öpnvkarte for my own city but couldn't find
who to contact for öpnvkarte, and thought it would be great to have
some kind of open database with all those methods + served area
limits, for example as something like a wiki table (can't believe I'm
saying this) that services like öpnvkarte could query.
