Use public_transport=stop_position to identify the place where a vehicle stops along a public transport route to pick up or drop-off passengers (as distinct from the place where passengers wait for the service). This tag can be used for any transport mode, or combination of transport modes (including rail, bus, tram, flight, taxi and ship).

Use public_transport=platform and/or highway=bus_stop to identify the places where passengers wait for the service.

How to map

Create a node on the highway, railway or other public transport route. Tag with node appropriately with:

Consider also creating public_transport=platform or highway=bus_stop etc for the place close to the route where passengers wait for transport. These elements, together with any associated benches and buildings can be included within a public_transport=stop_area.
