Make VBB station names search-safe.

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import tokenizeVbbStationName from '';



Station names in VBB are terribly inconsistent and user's search queries are not perfect either. This module tries to compensate all the weird edge cases:

  • S Südkreuz Bhf (Berlin) -> sbahn suedkreuz bahnhof berlin
  • S Beusselstr -> sbahn beussel strasse
  • S+U Warschauer Str. -> sbahn ubahn warschauer strasse
  • Charité - Campus Benjamin Franklin (Berlin) -> charite campus benjamin franklin berlin

npm install tokenize-vbb-station-name


const tokenize = require('tokenize-vbb-station-name')

tokenize('S+U Warschauer Str.')
.join(' ') // -> 'sbahn ubahn warschauer strasse'

Called with no arguments or an invalid argument, tokenize will return [].
