comment Finding nearest Stop location (DB) from current location
if you have the route co-ordinates, make sure the route lines are split at stops, then select the nearest line feature to the GPS position at the time maybe using a BBox, then find the nearest line vertex, then find the nearest stop to that segment, so I would say it's a 3-step process. Probably PostGIS would be much better than MySQL though

comment Finding nearest Stop location (DB) from current location
@Uffe Kousgaard - I don't think this is routing in its truest sense at all - it's a problem constrained by one link in a network so it can use standard geospatial tools to find a) the nearest vertex of the route to the user position and b) is the distance from that vertex to stop s2 greater or less than the distance from that vertex to stop s3. If that is the problem, no specific "routing" functionality is required

I think the newest version of MySQL is ok for spatial. Why don't you use that and do all the spatial stuff with that rather than Google? With a spatial DB, you can do spatial processing within the app itself, no need for a desktop GIS. a spatial DB is already a GIS.
