Can you explain in a little more detail what you are trying to do?

Hello, i need to export the public transport of Málaga,Spain. But when i click in export button ( , it appears something like that(,36.6774,-4.3288,36.7616). I'm doing a transport task and i only need the the bus routes in shp or something for arcGIS. thank you

In that case, see my answer below. The only thing left is to find a way to convert to shapefile. I think the most convenient would be to export as a GeoJSON and then use the free QGIS (similar to ArcGIS but more flexible) to convert to shapefile.

As @SomeoneElse said: if you don't explain what you have tried and what you are trying to achieve, it's hard to answer questions. I'll make the assumption that it's a simple question.

If you don't need a lot of bus routes (e.g. only bus routes in Colombia), you could use Overpass-turbo. You can find the data model here. Overpass-turbo is almost self explanatory thanks to the wizard. Here's an example for getting bus rout relations: You can then use Export to download in a number of data formats.
