I am trying to find the nearest bus stop from an initial location... where I am trying to find the shortest path an individual could walk from. 

I do not want to use "Find Nearest" because that gives the euclidean distance (straight line distance).  

I have a layer of all the roads as lines, so I am wondering if I could do find nearest where the connecting distance is along those lines.

I have a layer of all the initial location points, and a layer with all of the bus stops.

I have over a million initial points that I need to find the nearest bus stop location, so its a bigger set of data.
