This page describes a key prefix rather than a simple key.

The service:vehicle:* tagging scheme was introduced by iD Editor as a way to tag what the type of services a shop=car(dealership) and shop=car_repair object provides, in a way that does not conflict with the existing use of the service=* scheme used for tagging service roads (highway=service).


A few of the most used tagging combinations are listed below. More can be found by doing a search on Taginfo.

Another alternative is using the service=* tagging scheme to tag what kind of services a car repair shop provides. The service=* key has mainly been used together with highway=service tag and the different usage in association with shop=car_repair might be confusing to some users. Another alternative is to a car:*=* namespace tagging scheme. Neither scheme has been discussed or approved though, but at least service:vehicle:*=* is used more than the two other options. Although, tagging should not be based on prior tagging numbers alone.

Tag history

Introduced by iD without discussion[2], become quite widely used.


  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 These are the values documented in Key:service#Business services. One technical downside of the service=* tagging scheme for car repair is that it uses a non-freeform key, but because of overloading, undocumented values are ambiguous as to which tagging scheme they apply to.
