This key is used for the two most common types of conveyor transport for persons: escalators and moving walkways.

An escalator is a moving staircase – a conveyor transport device for carrying people between floors of a building.

A moving walkway (British English) or moving sidewalk (American English) (colloquially sometimes travelator, horizontal escalator, walkalator, autowalk, movator, people mover) is a slow moving conveyor mechanism that transports people, across a horizontal or inclined plane, over a short to medium distance.

Tagging

The conveying key is used together with highway=steps (for escalators) or highway=footway (for moving walkways).

Key Value Element Comment
conveying yes Way indicates that this feature is an escalator / moving walkway with unspecified direction
conveying forward Way movement in way direction
conveying backward Way movement opposite to way direction
conveying reversible Way changing direction

Other useful tags

  • incline=up, incline=down or the more precise incline=[-]<number>% can be used for conveyors that aren't horizontal.
  • width=*
  • tactile_paving=yes/no
  • Lanes (could be used for physically connected parallel escalators)
  • Access (if some potential users are forbidden from using the escalator)
