Transform HRT realtime bus data format to GTFS-realtime

Hampton Road Transit published real time bus data in a text format:
ftp://216.54.15.3/Anrd/hrtrtf.txt

This data needs to be transformed into GTFS-realtime so that any app that understands GTFS will be able to use it. Google Maps is one application that can use GTFS-realtime and there are many others.

I can connect you to Code for America Fellows and other civic hackers who have direct experience transforming the data formats like the one published by HRT into useful map and text messaging applications that riders need to make using the region's bus system more user friendly.
