     Currently it is very difficult (if not impossible) to handle public transport timetables in the network analyst. It would be great of the network analyst could directly import timetables in an easy manner. 

    Imagine the following situation: you have a bus stop/rail station layer as point layer on the one hand, and complete public transport timetables in tabular format on the other hand. Each bus stop/station of the point layer has an unique ID, which corresponds to a from- or to-node ID in the timetable table. The network analyst should then support generation of a network dataset based upon these two inputs, and should afterwards allow to model shortest paths over the complete timetable, including waiting times and accounting for different routes and times over the day.
