I’m trying to narrow routes down to very particular ones based on traveller preferences, and normally filtering by modes gets me to the right one, but not always.
So as a second option I wanted to use ‘via’, but it seems to be a bit too limited. Let me illustrate the point with an example. In this particular case between two given postcodes the normal route returns bus 242, but as an alternative I’m trying to force the journey planner to return one with route 48. Please have a look at the responses for these two requests:
In the first case I get a disambiguation result and in the second case specifying the lon/lat value just fails. So there’s no way to specify a valid via going through this bus stop.
Maybe it’s just a bug with the lon/lat method, but in general it would be great if it was possible to specify points using ids, just as the online journey planner accepts
viaid in the URL.
