Bus Stop Features

Trying to think of all the features I might record for bus stops, perhaps developing into a form for efficient completing.

Fields / Properties


As of 20080808, and confirmed by reading around Tag:highway=bus stop, I'm using ref=* for this.


Obviously using name=* for this one.


As of 20080808, I'm using transport:zone=* for this.


  • services (using route:services=s1,s2,.. since 20080808)
  • direction (using route:direction=north|south|east|west since 20080808) - no longer in use
  • timing stops, where buses will wait until scheduled departure time if early (using route:timing_stop=yes/no since 20081214)
  • start and finish stops, since I dislike the stop_x role recommended for routing (using route:starting_stop=yes/no and route:terminating_stop=yes/no since 20081216)
