subway entrance

Hi, why was the relation information for subway entrances wrong? This is how they are being mapped and is very useful for subways with multiple entrances.

Hi. The previous version of the page told to create a relation of type public_transport=stop_area → no problem here, it seems to be the right way of tagging, and from my observations it is what most people do. But the page also said: this relation "[...] can be a member of a Relation:route [...]" → here I don't agree: a stop_area is not part of a route. I don't see any mention of that in the Relation:route page, nor in the more recently approved public_transport#Route page. If you are referring to Bangkok Relation MRT Blue Line, IMO this route is wrongly tagged (other stations given in example are correctly tagged). Am I missing something?
I agree with you that it must be possible to have multiple subway entrances: relation public_transport=stop_area may have multiples members with role "entrance"... though it is not explicitly written in the page. Do you think it would be clearer if I tell it explicitly?
The section explaining how to create the relation public_transport=stop_area was removed because it rephrased page public_transport=stop_area → I replaced it by a link. But the page public_transport=stop_area misses subway entrances in the listing of its members (maybe I'll complete it when I have time...).
I added comments in the talk page on my motivations for rewriting most of the page, and the statistics on current usage. Tell me if page needs improvements. --Oligo 13:06, 12 July 2012 (BST)


Thank you for your warning. I was confused with the functioning of templates, and I see that I made a mistake. Corrected! --Tony Rotondas (talk) 16:30, 2 September 2013 (UTC)
