Oh, sure! I completely forgot this one.

The name on the signs reads both languages, typically as two lines. Like
The hyphen is used here in South Tyrol as a separator for multilingual
names (such as street names, towns, etc.).
Btw: This is approximately the affected bounding box of the import:

As far as I can see they do not support GTFS. But I'll ask.

Sure, but we are not allowed to import or use their network plans because
of their cc-nc license. So I thought that this route_ref field is the only
way to get at least some information about the routes into the DB. It is
the same as if a mapper sees an individual bus stop on a street without
knowing the whole bus route.
(route_ref is used ~140k times and appears to be used mostly in PT
What would be the alternative? Creating route relations that only contain
the stops without an actual route? Hm.
