drive_through=* - this key is used to indicate whether an amenity or shop offers drive-through (also known as drive-thru or drive up) service, it is possible to use it without leaving your vehicle.

Things that often have drive-through service include pharmacies, banks, ATMs, fast food outlets, post boxes and bottle shops.

Note this is different from a drive in, when you park your vehicle. For that, see drive_in=*.


Tag the amenity as drive_through=yes if if offers drive-through service.

If mapping the road past the drive-through, this can be tagged as highway=service and service=drive-through.
