Happy New Year!

I would like to ask if it is possible to have an in-map option, where all routes that serve a group of bus stops in the region can be shown at once (in text form), beside the bus stop code; this would be useful to trace all bus routes on a given map and at the same time won't clutter the map too much. This is also helpful for print-outs.

Some examples I have seen are this new town map at Jurong East Int: (they differentiate JEBI and non-JEBI services but you probably don't need to do that yet)

As well as from a very old public transport guide I have (and updating), which is now out of print:

Hope it works out!

Hi, you mean like this? https://busrouter.sg/#/stops/28009/routes

FYI, to see all passing routes for one stop, click on a stop then tap on the 'Passing Routes' button.

Erm no, I meant exactly like those in the images, with the map directly showing the bus routes (as text) of multiple bus stops in a region, much like how the bus stop codes / names are currently shown at a certain map zoom level. This can be a selected check option by the user.

(Updated earlier comment for clarity)

Could be a little challenging, some stops really have quite a lot of routes. So far I know Apple Maps does this:

  • As you zoom in, number of routes displayed will gradually increase.
  • But as there's quite a lot of text, you might miss out other places' labels around it

I have to say this is a very interesting observation. I have doubts that the bus stop number and name might be not so important. 🤔
