Details

Locations

The .msn file contains the physical locations of stations and other TIPLOC codes (e.g. junctions). However, the quality of the locations is often poor only accurate to about 1km and occasionally very wrong. Therefore, the UK2GTFS package contains an internal dataset of the TIPLOC locations with better location accuracy, which are used by default.

However you can also specify `locations = "file"` to use the TIPLOC locations in the ATOC data or provide an SF data frame of your own.

Agency

The ATOC files do not contain the necessary information to build the agency.txt file. Therfore this data is provided with the package. You can also pass your own data frame of agency information.
