How to Map

Routes

  • The name=* tag should include the starting suburb/town and the destination. Example: name=Newcastle → Mount Hutton
  • The ref=* tag must be the route number. Usually seen on the back of the bus on an LED display. Example ref=111
  • A bus route that is relayed between two locations should have two relations with a single Relation:route_master. An Example:
Number Relations Description
224 type=route_master; route_master=bus +
Relation type=route + route=bus
Relation type=route + route=bus
Travels from Newcastle to Wallsend and then back along the same way to Newcastle again but on the other side of the road. The first relation would have from=Newcastle and to=Wallsend. The second relation would have from=Wallsend and to=Newcastle

Stops

The Stop number can be seen bottom right
  • A single node or area can be used for a stop.
  • A bus stop is to be based off the Public transport tagging scheme.
  • The ref=* tag must be the Stop Number. This is usually seen in a corner of the stop sign. It has the format of ref=2305117.

Networks

There are numerous networks in the mentioned area. There are over 200 bus routes from lots of different networks usually with no official colour, it would be best practice to append the network colour mentioned here to colour=*. The mentioned colours are seen on their official websites and the operators nearly always have that colour paint on their buses. Don't forget to add the network=* tag to the route_relation.

Here is a table of the most known prominent bus networks:

Colour Network Operator Description Suggested Tags
#1A6196 Newcastle Buses & Ferries State Transit Authority This government operated network spreads into the Newcastle Metropolitan area from the major terminus at Newcastle Station. For more information on the network and maps, visit www.newcastlebuses.info. network=NBF + operator=State Transit
#F8B42B Hunter Valley Buses ComfortDelGro Cabcharge A fairly large network by the amount of distance covered. This network operates in the lower Hunter Valley and services towns such as Raymond Terrace, Maitland and Edgeworth. network=HVB + operator=ComfortDelGro Cabcharge
#E84E0F Central Coast - Busways Busways Operates services in the Central Coast region. This includes Gosford, Wyong, Swansea and Toukley. network=BCC + operator=Busways
