Summary of proposal:
The addition to the agency.txt section of the GTFS spec:
The agency_ticket_url specifies the URL of a web page that allows a
rider to purchase tickets or other fare instruments for that agency
online. The value must be a fully qualified URL that includes http://
or https://, and any special characters in the URL must be correctly
escaped. See http://www.w3.org/Addressing/URL/4_URI_Recommentations.html
for a description of how to create fully qualified URL values.
Initial implementation from a GTFS producer and consumer:
Producers: Over 8% of the feeds in the current Google Transit corpus
define an agency_fare_url field.
Consumers: The field is validated in the googletransit extension of
the feed validator and used in the Google Transit product.
Status: Prime candidate for acceptance.
Unless there are objections in the next week (Sept 6), we will
formally add this proposal to the GTFS spec.

I apologize the update took so long, but we've sorted out some issues
that should make the process smoother next time around.
