It is used on stop positions (public_transport=stop_position) of busses, trams and trains to indicate the number (or letter) of the corresponding platform (public_transport=platform). Add this Tag with the same value to both elements.

So it is used for the reference of one platform, as ref=* would indicate the ref of the whole stop area.




This key is rendered on ÖPNVKarte for all public transport platforms.
