Hi, Guys Im working on the public transport routing service and found one weird thing with the bus route here

The problem is after passing the street Rua Professor Milton Roque Ramos Krieger the bus turns right to Rua Lauro Linhares at this point. But if u take a look on the root details again u'll notice that the route also goes to the left that is not true. This happens because the bus route goes through part of the street Rua Lauro Linhares and this full street (way) is included in route relation. Removing the street (way) from the path will cause a gap in the route.

Actually it does not hurt my application but it looks wrong on the map and may confuse users. How can I fix it gracefully? Maybe devide the street (way) Rua Lauro Linhares into smaller ways? Or maybe there is another better solution?

Divide the road, and include in the relation only that part which is actually used by the bus.

This is something that people often complain about - creating public transport relation unnecessarily fragments our streets - but currently there's no better solution. Maybe in the future we'll have an option to make only a part of a street a relation member.
