Hello, I am doing a school project using this API and have a feature idea, but can't seem to find a good way to do it with the API. I would like to show all the route colors that go to each stop, but there isn't really an API call that matches. My best guess would be to use GetDeparturesByStop, but this would undoubtedly spam the API. Is there a good way to do this? Thanks!

I would call GetStopTimesByStop which has a route_id field. You could then cross reference this with GetRoutes to get the route color. Neither of those methods change often so you could have the results to make your application more performant. Edit: I just double checked and the route_id field is not actually in get stop times. So you would have to use the trip_id from GetStopTimes to call GetTrip to get the route_id.
