Now I encounter a bus route like this:

A scheduled departure first runs the route K58, but in the middle the route, it  
enters the bus terminus of the route K53, change the route display from K58 to 
K53 without unloading passengers (i.e. passengers can remain on board from the 
segment on route K58 to the segment on route K53), and runs the remaining 
journey on route K53. What's the proper way of mapping this route?
