Hi, I would like to export (or modify the exported file) such that I get only the transportation route.

Any suggestions?

You can query Overpass API with a query like the following:

out meta;

It searches for the bus line 636 in the network VRS. Other tags can be used for selecting in the same way. For convenience the query as a link: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/112

Thanks, but how can i get the boundaries of the map I am exporting?

The boundaries are just the smallest/largest lat and lon values of the appearing nodes. So it is straightforward to determine them.

@aliekor: or do you want to limit the area by a bounding box where the query should be made from?

If yes, this is possible: Read http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Overpass_API very intensively ... there are many possibilities.
