Rationale

Designate a pathway with a man-made incline used for entrances to buildings or handicap access to stair pathways. Mobility impaired pedestrians who are unable to use steps may find an alternative route using ramps. Ramps tend to have a shallow incline and aren’t very long, therefore a ramp would not be designated as an “incline.” The indication ramps may also be useful for cyclists planning a route on pedestrian pathways because it will allow them to bypass stairs.

"highway = access_ramp"

Rendering

This should be rendered similarly to the current steps feature, except that it should have a wheelchair symbol on it instead of parallel lines.
