You can filter all stations by id or any property (lodash.get will be used).

const stations = require('vbb-stations')
 
console.log(stations('900000009101')) // query a single station
console.log(stations({ // filter by property
    weight: 3563,
    'location.latitude': 52.542202
}))

full.json contains all stops of each station and unshortened names.

require('vbb-stations/full.json')['900000009101']
