There are subtle differences between two convention of mapping bus route:
- In PTv2, use one relation for each direction, so you generally need 2 relations for a bus line. Don't forget to add these relations to a route_master relation.
- In the traditional PTv1, each direction can mapped using 2 separate relations (sharing the same ref=* value); or alternatively, using a single relation.
Other differences will be explained down below in relevant parts.
|ref||reference||The reference by which the route is known. e.g. 4, 4A, X13, etc. (recommended)|
|operator||operator||Name of the company that operates the route.|
|opening_hours||service hours||The service hours of the bus route|
|name||individual name||The name of the route or line.|
|network||local or regional network||Name of the network; Can be an abbr. e.g., BVG, RMV.|
|wheelchair||yes / no / limited||Indicates if the buses on the route are low-floor busses for wheelchairs. (optional)|
|bicycle||yes / no / permissive||Indicates if bicycles are permitted on the bus. 'yes' if they are, which could be indicated by racks on the front of the bus. 'permissive' if they could be brought on to the bus, but no amenities for cyclists exist. 'no' if bicycles are banned from the bus.|
|colour||ex: red / #FFEEDD||The "official" colour for the bus route. Identifiers in some cities.|
|duration||duration||The running time of the bus route as stated in official documents Use HH:MM:SS, H:MM:SS, HH:MM, H:MM, MM, or M format. Example: 00:32, 00:32:00, or 32 for 32 minutes.(optional)|
|interval||service interval||The time between arrivals at any given stop along the route. Use HH:MM:SS, H:MM:SS, HH:MM, H:MM, MM, or M format. Example: 00:32:30 for a route that has buses arriving every 32.5 minutes.(optional)|
|roundtrip||yes/no||Whether the bus route is circular (the first and last stop are the same).(optional)|
|via||name||Important via station if any|
|(blank)/route/forward/backward||Zero or more||The ways making up the route, in order and connected. When mapping with PTv2, the empty role should be used.
However, when following the traditional and more-explicit PTv1, each role could be one of the following:
|hail_and_ride||Zero or more||Used on road segments in a public transport route relation where you can stop a vehicle at any point to get on or off. Common in asian countries.|
|stop/stop_exit_only/stop_entry_only||Zero or more||A bus stop, on the route road. The order of the members in the relation should be identical to the order in the timetable, and added in order at the beginning of the relation.|
|platform/platform_exit_only/platform_entry_only||Zero or more||A bus platform belonging to the route. The order of the members in the relation should be identical to the order of the stops in the timetable, and added in order at the beginning of the relation.|
