SMART bus stops

Posted by NixillUmbreon on 8 February 2018 in English (English)

I have just passed 1,000 bus stops (sitting at 1,001) mapped via a project I'm doing, so here's my first write-up.

What I'm doing

I'm taking a set of pre-planned bus rides to all of SMART's bus stops. Every last one of them. As I'm doing so, I'm using pen and printed maps to map out the locations of all of SMART's stops. Then when I get home, I'm doing all of the following:

  1. Creating public_transport=platforms for all of the bus stops
  2. Creating public_transport=stop_positions for all of the bus stops
  3. Adding those to the various route relations I created in the overhaul in December
  4. Also adding those to public_transport=stop_areas

What I've done so far

One thousand and one stops, including all stops on:

  • 125 Fort Street (North Terminal branch only)
  • 140 Southshore
  • 160 Downriver
  • 250 Ford Road
  • 275 Telegraph
  • 280 Middlebelt South
  • 330 Grand River / Beech Daly
  • 430 Main Street / Big Beaver

What's left to go

About 4,400 stops

Next update

Gonna update once every thousand stops

well done! I'm doing the exact same thing in the Paris area. Finished more than 2000 of them, remaining about the same amount. PT_V2 will vanquish!
