Area

Bus stations are normally larger than just a node, so can we have this as an area too? Smsm1 22:46, 27 July 2007 (BST)

Agree. Pretty much anything that can be a node can also be an area. Frankie Roberto 23:04, 27 July 2007 (BST)

highway=bus_stop

Should I tag on a bus-station several nodes with "highway=bus_stop" or should I tag several times "amenity=bus_stop" at the different places were the different bus-lines stop.--KartoGrapHiti 13:49, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

Original Discussion/Voting

Currently we have a map feature for a bus stop, but, as far as I can, tell not the more significant feature of a bus station.

I already independantly use amenity=bus_station so I think this is a must-have addition. Ewmjc 02:54, 19 September 2006 (BST)
What is the difference between a bus stop and a bus station ? FredB 22:02, 29 September 2006 (BST)
A bus station consists of several bus stops, usually allowing people to travel in every direction they want. I suggest adding this feature as Node/Area. Wollschaf 22:25, 29 September 2006 (BST)
A "bus stop" would be a place on a particular bus route where the bus regularly stops to pick up / drop off passengers. A "bus station" would usually be a terminus where many routes stop / start, and where you can change between routes, etc. Dmgroom 23:47, 29 September 2006 (BST)
