Generally for access to a building, motorway service station, beach, campsite, industrial estate, business park, etc. This is also commonly used for access to parking, driveways, and alleys.

Note: This is not the way to tag a frontage road, sometimes called a service road. That should be tagged with one of the other highway=* values, depending on what function the frontage road serves.

How to map

ElementWay.png

To map service ways nothing else than a simple way is required. Add the highway=service tag to it and a name=* if appropriate.

To define a service way in more detail, see service=*.

Examples

Picture/Description Tags Mapnik
service way for access to a fuel station amenity=fuel
name=Classic
also an area with
building=yes
and a way with
highway=service
subordinated service ways on a parking lot. In an area with
amenity=parking
often multiple ways with
highway=service
service=parking_aisle.

The main ways on the parking lot, connecting multiple parking_aisle should be mapped with highway=service, only.
