Service Revision Bugs

A number of you have let me know of various bugs in the data from the latest service revision (route 174 should be removed, misnamed stops, bad schedules, etc). However, the biggest issue by far is that real-time arrival data is missing for a number of routes and trips (some 12+% of trips are affected) .

The problem is that AVL data from King County Metro and schedule data from King County Metro are currently mismatched for a number of routes. I've been in talks with KCM and I'm hoping to get the issue resolved on their end ASAP. In the meantime, I'm going to try to hack together a temporary work-around to be put in place later tonight.

Specific routes that are probably affected:

1, 2, 5, 7, 13, 14, 15, 17, 18, 21, 22, 23, 25, 26, 27, 28, 36, 37, 42, 49, 54, 55, 76, 77, 106, 118, 119, 124, 174, 984, 994, 995

Sorry for inconvenience. Be glad this only happens three times a year!
