You mean "the bus stations of the city of Geneva" ? You mean "the address" like a house number (the nearest) and street name or the bus station names ?

Yes I want to mean the exactly address from the bus station. With the number and the street name :) But they have like 1000 bus stops. I want to take reference for openstreetmap you know?

The bus stations in Geneva have house numbers?

No but it's ok with the nearest house number. Do you think it's possible?

(12 Nov '13, 14:31) Jack_sparoow

Yes this is possible. But it would require a separate geocoding query to Nominatim for every single bus stop with a reasonable wait time between in order to comply with its usage policy.

I'm not aware of a ready-to-use software capable of obtaining the information you are asking for. But you can create such a software or a script yourself.

First you have to get all bus stops in Genève, for example by using the Overpass API with the following query:

out body;

You can view the result for this example query on overpass turbo.

The second step is to parse the result and generate a Nominatim reverse geocoding query for each bus stop by specifying the osm_type and osm_id parameters. Example result for bus stop with ID 368182989. But when doing this you have to comply with Nominatim's usage policy or use MapQuest's Nominatim instance or install a local instance.
