I'd like to propose a new set of types for schema.org to represent all
kinds of transport data (bus, train, carpooling, taxi, car rental, ...).

A few thoughts on what it should include:

* Publishing information about a transport.

* Offering/demanding a transport service, including a Company/Personthat
offers/demands it.

* Route informations (start, destination, waypoints, driving
instructions) - i.e. by extending GeoShape with a list of waypoints.
Supporting semantic markup like this could be useful for a lot of people
as well as a lot of services like Google Maps, public transport
companies, car rental companies and carpooling sites.

Is there any interest in working together on this project?

I'd love to hear your feedback.
