Perhaps the best steps might be to try a tool like go-sync, or something
that can example the GTFS data and find existing bus stops by lat/long.

We'd want a few reports - OSM bus stops that aren't matched to a gtfs stop
(manual deletion candidates), new gtfs stops, and of course, the ones that
are a quick/simple match.

Let's start a write up and take it to the imports list for further advice.
