Light Rail GTFS With Duplicate Route Names


#1

I am wondering how to make sense of this in the Light Rail routes.txt:

“3-L1-sj2-2”,“LR”,"",“L1 Dulwich Hill Line”,“Sydney Light Rail Network”,“0”,“EE343F”,“FFFFFF”
“3-L1-sj2-3”,“LR”,"",“L1 Dulwich Hill Line”,“Sydney Light Rail Network”,“0”,“EE343F”,“FFFFFF”
“3-L1-sj2-1”,“LR”,"",“L1 Dulwich Hill Line”,“Sydney Light Rail Network”,“0”,“EE343F”,“FFFFFF”

Are these really separate routes? What’s going on with three separate routes with the same name?

Perhaps the route name can be updated to disambiguate the route list or maybe they should be merged into a single route?

Hi, these are all the same route (there is currently only one Light Rail route in Sydney). The separate entries are due to versioning in the data in the backend system due to new timetables commencing. You will see the same behaviour in the full GTFS bundle (formerly TDX GTFS).
