Line Referential

Description

A line includes one or several default routes (usually, a round trip; it defines a service for specific target, often described by a name or a commercial code). In addition, a line is defined by its network, its company, and its “mode”.

Consult the Lines

In order to work, a line depends on a mission and a timetable defining validity dates and effective days (example: mondays, tuesdays, thursdays, fridays from March to June 2016).
