Infrastructure is mapped as nodes and ways. Bus stops on the ground and iron rails are mapped as such. Relations collect ways and stop nodes to create routes.
The operator=* tag might be applied to bus stops. It should represent the operator of that bus route. Some current uses:
If a stop is served by multiple operators, the stop itself should not be tagged with operator, that should be done in the route relation.
This section discusses the mapping of the infrastructure, i.e. the sleepers and rails on the ground. See next section for routes rolling on these rails.

|Cherryville - Waterford||50%||GPS to Athy only, landsat roughly traced Athy to Thomastown, Muine Bheag and Thomastown stations not marked|
|Ballybrophy - Limerick Junction||95%||Kenguest 12:41, 1 May 2009 (UTC)||Needs to be confirmed by GPS. Railway bridges "on the ground" are a-ways from where they are projected to be.|
|Sligo - Dublin Conolly||100%||Blazejos 12:41, 12 May 2010 (UTC)||done with GPS but I'm not certain that evrywhere should be bridge instead of railway crossing
Public transport routes
How to create public transport relations (on top of existing rails and roads), is discussed here in detail: Ireland/Public_transport_routes
