|12/20/2012||Removed extra fare attribute causing incorrect fare quotes.|
|11/28/2012||Corrections to the calendar_dates file which defines holidays.|
|10/05/2012||ISSUE: "trip_id" for Train 277 is set to 275_20121001 in the GTFS.
ANSWER: Our feed developer has checked the data. Although there is a discrepancy between the trip_id and the trip_short_name, it is not causing a referential integrity error as Google Transit is able to pull up a valid itinerary for this train number. An immediate update is not required. Since the feed is still fairly new, we will update after we receive more feedback from developers and users of Google Transit.
