Voting on Public Transport

This proposal covers a complete view on the public transport and extends the existing and well known tags with more exact and clearly defined new tags. Most of the proposed tags are already widely used. With some differences between the cities described in several wiki pages, the new tags are a de facto standard in several cities in Central Europe.
