Hi everyone,

There are several bus routes withdrawn in my town.
But these are still shown on OpenStreetMap.

Is there a way to remove an entire bus route, without first deleting all members one by one?
Thank you in advance!

I'm assuming you want to delete all the route relations that belong to a single route master relation ? Deleting the highway=* ways that are members of the route relation is not a good idea.

With JOSM, you can do the former by selecting any highway that is part of the route, then right-click on the route master relation in the tag/membership panel and choose select members, and finally press delete. You can then delete the route master relation itself. Not sure how to do this with other editors.

That said, I would probably not bulk-delete things like this: route relations can be a bit complex and I'd prefer to check relations individually before deleting each one. Route master relations don't usually have too many members.
