This question is about “for” and “to” in terms of destination or direction. Which is right? Are they both right? Could you give me more examples and information about the usage of for and to?

a. Is this the right bus stop for downtown?

b. Is this the right bus stop to downtown?


In your example for is correct. It does not signify direction. It signifies purpose.
