Accès handicapés/ Accessibilité

Comment précise-t-on si l'arrêt est accessible aux chaises roulantes ?? Avant on utilisait highway=bus_stop avec wheelchair=yes/no/limited. Mais peut-on le faire avec wheelchair=yes/no/limited et platform ? ( station est trop grand/vaste pour wheelchair=yes/no/limited) --APP3L initiation (talk) 20:18, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

Oui, je ne vois pas de problème à tagger l'accéssibilité de la platforme, ainsi qu'éventuellement celle de la stop_position. En effet, highway=bus_stop peut être remplacé par public_transport=platform dans la majorité des cas. --Gileri (talk) 19:51, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

Bus stops

"A small bus stop. Can be mapped more rigorously using public_transport=stop_position for the position where the vehicle stops and public_transport=platform for the place where passengers wait. See public_transport=* for more details." (Quote from Sadly, that is not really a good solution, as you need 2 nodes for one thing. The bus stop. It made the whole editing more complicated and did not improve anything! Is it somehow possible to ammend the p_t:v2 and bring back a simple "bus stop" tag? Also the stop_position tag is utter nonsence, as there are stations, where the bus stops somewhere else on the rails than a tram, or where at a train station, trains of different lenghts stop at different points. Who thought this stop:position thing up? Someone who rarely uses public transport ? Emergency99 (talk) 18:49, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

A bus stop is really a misnomer. There is two things, as explained in the Public Transport article. On one hand you have the place where people wait to go inside the bus (or train, or any other PT), and the point where the bus/other PT stops in its way.
If you only want to map where people wait to board a PT, fine, just map a node/way aside the road with public_transport=platform. Only one thing to map. If mappers (like me) want to go into detail, then fine also, let them detail public transport features. Please don't sacrifice map depth and completeness just because you don't want to go into details.
If we go down that road, shouldn't we just make a node public_transport=station inside a multi-modal hub with trains, metro and buses to symbolize the whole station and PT features, as "it's just one thing".
For the ad hominem : I use buses, train and trams regularly, and I mapped a lot of stops according to the PT v2 scheme. --Gileri (talk) 20:01, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
