I would go the route of contacting them, and saying : "Hey, have you heard
of OSM? Why don't you stick up proper streetmapping on your website showing
the routes, for free? If you donate your route data it will get added to the
map and ... " ect.

I've learned that a reciprocal relationship like this is one of the best
ways of getting something from someone.

Otherwise, *no* - unless something is clearly marked as copyleft / Creative
Commons then it is in copyright, there is no need to display copyright for
it to apply.
