Used to indicate duration of a route that is bus, route=ferry, railway=funicular, aerialway=cable_car etc). The duration does not include any possibly required waiting time. Applied to relations or ways. The duration for a relation should contain the sum of durations needed for the individual relation elements.
Most useful where the route has a clear beginning and end. Should only be applied where normal routing algorithms and traffic analysis cannot figure out how long it takes (highways is the most obvious example).
It's uncertain how to show duration between stops. Comments are welcome.
Be aware that values less than one hour have been entered as simple integer minutes. This practice is discouraged as it's ambiguous with integer hours.
A more formal alternative is ISO 8601, but usage is very low (< 20) in March 2017:
