When to Edit a Trip
Here are some common scenarios when you would edit the Trip:
A Trip is now starting at a new time
Update the start time for the Trip (HH:MM:SS)
A Trip is no longer occurring on a day of the week
Remove the Service Day for the Trip.
A Trip is being serviced by a different Block
Update the Block for the Trip.
A Trip is now occurring at a different headway
Update the headway for the Trip (HH:MM:SS)
A Trip is being moved from one Calendar to another
Update the Calendar for the Trip.
A Trip is having its Stop Pattern and/or Timed Pattern adjusted to one that already exists (such as matching one Trip to another already in your Schedule.)
Update the Stop Pattern and/or Timed Pattern.
When to Not Edit a Trip
Because Trips represent the culmination of a Route, Stop Pattern, Timed Pattern and Calendar, your edits may need to be made elsewhere in GTFS Manager to see them appear in your Schedule.
Here are some common scenarios when you would need to edit something else besides the Trip:
A Stop is no longer serviced by a Trip
A Trip now ends 5 minutes later
A Trip will be serviced by another Route
A Trip will end in four weeks
