Tagging Routes

Create a relation with the following tags

  • type = route
  • route = bus
  • network = NCT Go2, NCT Ntwk, NCT Link
  • name = Go2 #, Bridgford Bus, Network #
  • operator = Nottingham City Transport
  • ref = # - Number shown on destination blind - e.g. 11, 11C, Skylink
  • wheelchair = yes/no - Is the route generally wheelchair accessible?
  • colour - The routes colour

I've also been adding destination:in and destination:out with the text displayed on the blinds in-case an official tag comes along.
