I haven't looked just yet, but it's sure to be useful.

There are other such services already available.

Google has added coast-to-coast public transport information for the whole of Great Britain to its Maps app.

It said the data included departure times and routes for buses, ferries, trains and trams in England, Scotland and Wales.Google Adds UK Public Transport Data To Maps [bbc.co.uk]

Definitely useful data for maps to have - not sure the departure times data will stay up to date. But individual bus, train and tram stops is always helpful.

Started checking, the times should be OK as they originate from Traveline but on checking half of them seem to be a load of *****.
