I have 3 files a bus route network, road network and bus stops. I want the bus stops to be the connections between the road network and the bus route. When I try and build the network dataset I am getting a standalone user-defined junction error. I tried snapping the stops to the bus route and building a network dataset with just these 2 files but still got the same error. I followed the instructions from here Snap point to line in ArcGIS to do that. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to fix this?

what problem are you trying to solve? Optimal bus routes? –  Craig Mar 3 at 19:42

I had the same problem and read this post http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/26566-Build-errors-in-Network-Dataset hope it will help you, just exclude the stops in the network, it worked for me.

While this post may be helpful for the asker to read, your Answer would be more valuable if you described the steps that you are proposing in some detail. –  PolyGeo Mar 3 at 21:10
