What do you think about the possibility of adding a url to the "departures_board" or "passenger_information_display" tag to be able to report arrival times in real time at a train / subway / bus station?

I think it can be very useful information. If it is added in a simple way through a tag, it could be easily implemented by mapping and navigation software and used for navigation in public transport or simply for querying the waiting time at a specific public transport station.

Is there perhaps some website with that information (an actual departure board, not a vague "link to timetables")?  If so, wouldn't the "website" tag work for that, like at https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/2083241360 ?

Incidentally, there's a whole mailing list designed for "how to tag X" questions over at https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/taggingIt's probably a better fit for what you're taking about than here, which is more to do with software development and tile hosting stuff.
