Status: In use

A bus stop is a place where passengers can board or alight from a bus. Its position may be marked by a shelter, pole, bus lay-by, or road markings. Some bus stops are unmarked and known only by word-of-mouth or from information provided on a timetables.

The highway=bus_stop tag is widely used on a node off to one side of the highway way to identify the position where passengers wait for a bus beside the carriageway. It is highly recommended to use this tag in combination with public_transport=platform, because highway=bus_stop is likely to deprecate in the future.

The Public Transport Schema introduced the public_transport=stop_position tag to show where the vehicle stops. If you wish to map this, please tag that node on the road's way, not on the same node as highway=bus_stop.

How to map

Bus stop

A bus stop should be defined for each discrete location where a pole is placed or where a person should wait for a vehicle. The widely used approach is to place bus stop nodes off to one side of the highway way, and not with node being part of the highway=* way (being the place where the vehicle stops - see below). If there are places for passengers to wait on both sides of the road then two bus stops should be defined.

Use of the tags 'route_ref', 'location' and 'towards' is no longer recommended in conjunction with highway=bus_stop. This information should instead be associated with the corresponding route=* relation. In some areas highway=platform has also been used. It is recommended that these get changed to meet the above guidelines.

Recommended tagging:

Tag Usage Description
highway=bus_stop  Important This tag is a widely used on a node positioned to the side of the road (where passengers wait).
public_transport=platform  Important Used instead of, or together with highway=bus_stop. Should be used in combination with bus=yes. If passengers can also board or alight trams from the same facility also add tram=yes.
public_transport=pole ? Optional Used instead of, or together with highway=bus_stop when there is a pole at the station.
name=*  Important Name of the bus stop, especially when there exists no public_transport=stop_area-Relation. If a stop area relation exists, then this tag can carry the numbering of the platform in addition to the bus stop name.
ref=* ? Optional Reference of the bus stop.
network=* ? Optional Name of the network if exists.
operator=* ? Optional Name of the operator.
shelter=* ? Optional 'yes' if the stop is protected from the rain.
passenger_information_display=* ? Optional 'yes' if the stop has a real time electronic passenger information display.
bench=* ? Optional 'yes' if users can sit on bench at the bus stop.
layer=* ? Optional For where the associated road is not at ground level. Essential with complex multi-level situations where there would otherwise be doubt as to which road (or stop_position) it was associated.

Stop position

Use public_transport=stop_position as a node within the highway=* to indicate the place where the bus stops, normally next to a bus stop. Associated tags include:

Tag Usage Description
public_transport=stop_position ! Required According to the public transport schema this is placed on the street.
bus=yes ! Required According to the public transport schema this replaces highway=bus_stop.
name=*  Important Name of the bus stop, especially when there exists no public_transport=stop_area-Relation.
ref_name=* ? Optional Name which is used in Internet timetables, usually a combination of bus stop name and city name; e.g., ref_name=Steintor, Hannover.
network=* ? Optional Name of the network if exists.
operator=* ? Optional Name of the operator.
ref=* ? Optional Reference of the bus stop (also uic_ref=* and asset_ref=*)
tram=yes ? Optional According to the public transport schema this replaces railway=tram_stop.
railway=tram_stop ? Optional Tagged if it is also a tram stop. For compatibility; can be replaced with public_transport=stop_position+tram=yes.

Stop area/ bus station

A major transport interchange for buses may be tagged with amenity=bus_station or alternatively with public_transport=station. A stop area may also include other related facilities, such as amenity=shelter and amenity=bench where these facilities are associated with the overall facility, rather than with a single bus stop.

It is sometimes beneficial to create a relation tagged with type=public_transport and public_transport=stop_area to group a number of bus stops and stopping that are close to one-another in a way that allows each movement by passengers between them.

Tag Usage Description
type=public_transport ! Required Defines the relation as type=public_transport
public_transport=stop_area ! Required Defines public_transport=* as stop area (in this case as bus stop)
name=* ! Required Name of the bus stop.
network=* ? Optional Name of the network if exists.
operator=* ? Optional Name of the operator.
ref=* ? Optional Reference of the bus stop.
amenity=bus_station ? Optional Indicating that this stop area is a bus station
public_transport=station ? Optional An alternative way of indicating a bus station
