So it sounds like essentially we are saying the import wasn't discussed at
least as far as what the tags were to be used, I note that the STO stops on
Wellington have a different set of tags.  Nor was any thought given to
preserving bus shelter information nor to keeping the information up to
date nor to removing any bus stops already mapped.

Oh well such is life.
