So a documented way of including GTFS link in routes?
Routes only, or is there a desire to have this on stops too?
Needs a proposal.

I would think a proposal for routes (ferry or otherwise) where GTFS is not freely available is also needed.
The other thing picked on it keeping it 'up to date'.
One says a route is out of date for years (why the contributor does not up date it is not stated), so a time table will be even more likely to be out of date.
As these people probably have a GTFS system then a proposal for those who don't have GTFS should remove their objection.
But first there needs to be that GTFS link so they can be happy.
