Ireland/Public transport

Infrastructure is mapped as nodes and ways. Bus stops on the ground and iron rails are mapped as such. Relations collect ways and stop nodes to create routes.

Bus stops

highway=bus_stop should be applied to nodes to represent a bus stop.

The operator=* tag might be applied to bus stops. It should represent the operator of that bus route. Some current uses:

If a stop is served by multiple operators, the stop itself should not be tagged with operator, that should be done in the route relation.

Railway rails

This section discusses the mapping of the infrastructure, i.e. the sleepers and rails on the ground. See next section for routes rolling on these rails.

Ballina - Manulla Junction 100% gpsmayo2009 15:58, 08 July 2011 (UTC) Confirmed by GPS tracklog.
Westport - Castlebar 95% Needs to be confirmed by GPS
Castlebar - Manulla Junction 100% Needs to be confirmed by GPS
Cherryville - Waterford 50% GPS to Athy only, landsat roughly traced Athy to Thomastown, Muine Bheag and Thomastown stations not marked
Ballybrophy - Limerick Junction 95% Kenguest 12:41, 1 May 2009 (UTC) Needs to be confirmed by GPS. Railway bridges "on the ground" are a-ways from where they are projected to be.
Sligo - Dublin Conolly 100% Blazejos 12:41, 12 May 2010 (UTC) done with GPS but I'm not certain that evrywhere should be bridge instead of railway crossing

Public transport routes

How to create public transport relations (on top of existing rails and roads), is discussed here in detail: Ireland/Public_transport_routes
