The most utterly infuriating part of trying to deal with local authorities is the way, once you have a negative reputation with them, they will then obnoxiously block you from doing anything to improve that reputation, like put in a bus stop. If you ran a train line past their town 20 years ago, forget about EVER improving your relationship. They will hate you with the strength of a billion galaxy-sized supernovas for all of eternity, and will pick up arms and start shooting at the mere prospect of giving them a bus stop. It's ludicrous and it's aggravating and it makes absolutely no sense.

An extremely slow rising rating in the city is also a problem.
The Wiki says that the rating increases every month by 5 if it is lower than 200, it would mean that to be able to build a station, in the worst case you would have to wait 20 years, what is over 3 hours

Perhaps it would be more practical to provide a passenger service from the very beginning. When you have at least five well-serviced stations in the town, the rating recovers fairly quickly. As a side effect, the town will start growing, but excessive growth can be prevented by blocking road ends.
Because not everyone plays the same way you do. Because starting every game by methodically setting up a bus service in every town for the sole and explicit purpose of subverting a deliberate game mechanic which isn't working properly is both annoying and immersion-breaking. I play one-player only, and I play to experiment with different challenges for myself like no airports or road vehicles only or no borrowing or one industry only or passengers only, or whatever. Having to begin each game by being forced to put two money-losing bus stops in every town to permanently forget about a game mechanic is pointless and irritating. If I was going to do that then I'd just turn off local authorities altogether. I'm not asking for local authorities to be removed, just fixed.
