Public transport

This tag can be used to mark the start station in combination with route=* of a public transport.

E.g. the route of a bus service, tram service, metro service or train service.

Use one relation for each direction, so you need 2 relations for one line.

Use to=* for the terminal station in the same relation.

Recreational routes

Use from=<name> to tag the name of the start location of the route.

Combine with to=* for the end location in the same relation.

For bidirectional route relations (common in bicycle route relations) consider the operator's choice of main direction.

If the route relation is a section of a longer route, make sure the sections use the same main direction when tagging the from and to locations.
