      A trip refers to the path taken by a vehicle along its designated route, following a specific schedule.
      (if any):
      • 1.4.1 Find the starting stop and link it to the route. If the stop does not exist, create it at the required location.
      • 1.4.2 Sequentially link all the other stops to the route.
      • 1.4.3 If a stop was linked to the route by mistake, it can be unlinked.
      • 1.4.4 If the trajectory between two stops is constructed incorrectly, it can be corrected using different trajectory construction modes.
      • 1.4.5 Add a schedule for each trip.
    5. 1.5 Check the entered data and click the "Send for moderation" button. The list of edits you have made can be viewed in your user profile.
