Let me know when you would have time for a hangout. I'd like to have a look
at that route! Preferably with somebody who actually knows how the bus
follows it.

But a line that does A->B, then B->A is not a roundtrip, and it would take
2 route relations to describe the itineraries + a route_master to describe
the line.
