|Tools for this tag|
This number should be verifiable. This tag should only be used if the bench is separated into a specific number of individual seats, for example, by armrests. Do not use this tag if you are guessing how many people a bench could probably hold.
Other features, such as amenity=restaurant,tourism=alpine_hut, use the key capacity=* to state the maximum number of persons who can fit in the feature. For benches, seats=* is by far the most popular key for this purpose. (Taginfo shows 280,000 uses for bench seats compared to 2600 uses for bench capacity.)
