Hello and welcome!

In addition to anything on the technical side required for "Web editor 
for public transport routes", what I'd definitely suggest* is (if you're 
not familiar already) is have a go at collecting some OSM data, 
particularly in this case public transport route data.  That way you'll 
understand a bit about the data collection process (and "feel the pain" 
of public transport mapping currently).  I'd try entering data using iD, 
and also using JOSM (standalone Java-based editor), Potlatch 2 
(flash-based in-browser editor) and also any others that support it 
(maybe one of the mobile editors such as Vespucci?) so that you get a 
feel for the other approaches that editor writers have taken compared to iD.

Best Regards,

* note that I'm in no way connected to this GSoC project idea or to GSoC 
in general - just trying to offer useful suggestions.
