The Sydney Trains real-time feed was upgraded at midnight on September 24th. The upgrade will have the following impact:
Before the upgrade all trip_ids in the trains bundle would change everyday when it was published, meaning if users do not download the bundle daily there will be zero matches with the real-time feed. Now trip_ids will remain the same where there is no material change to the trip. Note that Sydney Trains still make some daily updates for operational running, so users are recommended to update the bundle frequently to match 100% of trips. If you no not update every day, at least now it won’t completely break the link with real-time, as the majority of trip will match.
Splitting the North Shore and Western lines into individual routes in the data to minimise confusion.
