  From what I recall, Go-Sync only synchronizes stops but not the GTFS 
route paths with OSM route relations.

  The routing samples on the OpenStreetMap web site will not 
automatically give public transport trip routing because the full GTFS 
schedule information is not in OSM.   It would require a separate local 
site such as OpenTripPlanner which automatically combines full GTFS with 
OSM data.   There are some companies providing large scale instances of 
OpenTripPlanner which may cover your area.
