Navigating the Block Schedules
From Blocks, select Block Schedules.
If there are no overlapping blocks (see below), select any Block to pull up its complete Schedule information:
1. Select By Date
Depending on the complexity of the Schedule, it may make sense to look at a specific date to understand how the Block is used on that Date. This may also be useful for determining "What does Block A do on Mondays?"
2. Calendars to Include
If a Block is used in multiple Calendars, such as a Year-Round and School Year Calendar, this allows selection of one or more Calendars in the Timetable/Timeline.
3. Combine Calendars/Day Groups
If a Block is used in multiple Calendars, or in multiple Service Days, it may be advantageous to combine one or both of those elements in the Timeline/Timetable. Note that this may produce a visualization that does not reflect a single 'run' of a Block as it could contain Trips that occur on different days.
Unique to Block Schedules is the ability to combine multiple Routes in the Timeline/Timetable. The Route colors are applied to the Block (which overrides the Block's color.) This is particularly helpful if a Block interlines.
Editing Trips in Block Schedules
At this time, editing is not available in Block Schedules. Selecting a Trip will bring up that Trip's details, but making changes, or Deleting a Trip, is not available.
If any Block in the GTFS is overlapping, the Block will be highlighted at the top of the Block Schedules:
Selecting the Block will bring up the Block Schedule, including a list of upcoming dates of service where the overlap is occurring (particularly if the overlap is caused by a Service Exception):
Scrolling down to the Schedule, the problem overlap is flagged in red:
Since it is not possible at this time to edit the Trip from the Block Schedules view, selecting one of the Trips allows for a link to "Edit Trip in Route Editor".
