To clarify: the transfer role could be added to the role value list:

*None* or main The role value for the main section(s) of a signposted or in
any way waymarked route.
alternative A signposted or otherwise waymarked alternative branching off
then rejoining the main route at a significantly different point. The
alternative is used instead of a section of the main route.
excursion A signposted or otherwise waymarked side track which rejoins the
main track at or close to the same point where it left, e.g. to visit a
place of interest. The excursion is an optional addition to the main route.
approach Signposted or otherwise waymarked access route to or from
transport infrastructure e.g. parking, train station, bus station, cable
car. An approach is used in addition to the main route.
connection Signposted or otherwise waymarked link route from one
recreational route to another recreational route and vice versa. A
connection is used to switch from one route to another. Note that an
approach might act as a connection, e.g. when it ends/begins at a major
train station where other routes also pass through. In that case, use the
role approach.

Given this definition, the connection should appear in both routes involved.
*| transfer | Route section where a different mode of transport is
necessary, e.g. cable car transfer in a hikingh trail, train transfer in a
bicycle route, bus transfer through a tunnel. A transfer section is an
integral part of the route. |*
