My understanding is that TfL doesn't licence the information on a basis
that would allow it to be directly used, so OSM rely on members of the
public using the buses, or tracing the routes between bus stops.
How up to date the information is depends on how enthusiastic people are
in an area, and there tends to be a preference for mapping things for
the first time over maintaining existing mapping.
