What is also done in the Netherlands is grouping all the route_masters 
in a network=public_transport relation, e.g. 
In the Netherlands, all(most all) public transport is divided into 
concessions, each one of those has their own "Network". The Operator is 
set on the Network.

I just read a forum post 
<http://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?id=55123> which shows that 
this isn't always the case, in Germany the operator is set in the 
"network" or "operator" values of the routes/route_masters.
