comment Can the Reporting Tool in ArcMap connect to Auxiliary data, like Excel tables?
I'm not sure if this is always true, but occasionally I had to refresh the layer to get the latest data from excel

TRB published in 2007 or 2008 XML and data exchange standards for Transportation. Also i think the miller book and M Goodchild have worked on this topic.

what is your opinion on using GTFS data? does that fall under these restrictions you mention?

comment North America Transit data
I don't think the BTS collects any specific data on transit; since transit is mostly run by commissions or city/municipal departments. Some of this data is proprietary and is hard to grab. That's why I think Google does not release a Transit API

About Number 2: Ideally, all links should be conencted to the vertices from the network node; however, in some occasions, you might have a link that spans an entire polygon, so the dummy link will end up being outside of the polygon
