Hi. I'm new to the dataset and am using the .txt files
Given a geospatial point, I'm trying to determine the nearest stops and the routes associated with those stops. For example, the nearest T stop to my location is Forest Hills, and it's an Orange Line stop.
Getting nearby stops is obviously no problem, but getting from there to the Route I'm finding a little convoluted. The best I can tell, I have to use geo coordinates to find a Shape entry that includes coordinates very close to the stop I'm interested in. From there I need to look up the associated Trip and then match to the Route.
I'm wondering if there's an easier way that I'm missing.
