How to get the service area for public transport?

Hi folks,
I am happy to join this awesome community? I have learned that administrative boundaries are mapped using relations. I have learned that public transport stops are mapped via nodes.

Is there a way to extract the service area of a public transport provider from OSM?

I could imagine to filter all stosp belonging to a transport company or authority. Afterwards I am drawing a polygone on a map using the stop node’s locations. Is that realistic?

Does it makes sense to maintain the service area of public transport in OSM in the way administrative boundaries are mapped?

Are routes mapped as relations already? Could a service area be a set of all routes belonging to the same transport service provider? Is that a realistic approach?
