comment Create an optimized point layer derived from a road layer so that the driving distance between each point is x
@whuber the equipment must be located on the network itself similar to underground loops or overhead signs.

@whuber you are correct in your assumptions and interpretation

@whuber , is my second edit more comprehensive, or is there anything you'd like to me to add or expand upon?

comment Reinventing the wheel: Public Transit System
As a transportation and traffic guy, I would suggest you speak with the local GIS and traffic folks about what they use for GIS systems. It has been my experience that a lot of times, different municipal offices build GIS systems in silos rather than in coordination. Also for the purposes of traffic planning and modeling, it would help us more if the systems were interoperable.

comment Determine the furthest driving distance from a road layer to the nearest point of a point layer using OSM/QGIS
I'm still working on this. I've made some headway but haven't solved the problem totally. I'll keep you posted.

comment Are there open standards for storing multi-modal routing graphs?
TRB is one of the goto organizations in North America. I'm not sure how influential they are in Europe. Here's their TransXML document. I'm not sure if it covers what you need and also I'm not sure if it's widely used either.

I sort of understand what you're trying to do, but I'd like to ask you to expand on what you're trying to achieve and perhaps where are you getting stuck at?
