We are currently doing an import of county boundary data in Germany.
Before we did the import we showed the new data that we planned to
import on an OSM Inspector map. Now that the import is done we show the new
and old data so that people can see what is happening and do manual
correction where needed.

I suggest a similar approach here, i.e. show bus stops that will be
imported, ask community for feedback. If there are no major objections,
import the data and - again - show it in some tool. People can revert to
old data manually if the new data has problems here and there.
