What would you use historic GTFS-realtime data for?

Hi Everyone. If we could make historic GTFS-realtime data available, what would you use it for?

This would be used for performance analysis, such as that done by Katie Bell in July 2018.

Katie said then: The planned data is always available, but the realtime data doesn’t seem to be saved for posterity – or at least TfNSW won’t admit it. They didn’t answer my plea on the Open Data users’ pages. [see post]. It is, however, available for a short period and the app developers such as GroSoft who sell TripView make it available to customers


For the reasons @austta suggested.

Furthermore I have a use-case that is to report on performance of particular runs on particular dates. This currently has to be collected close to the end of the active run, which isn’t always reliable. The focused run changes daily.
