The key subway=yes/no is used to specify whether subway trains stop at a feature such as a train station or platform. A monorail is a distinctive railway where the trains run on one single rail, often suspended above streets.

This key was approved for use with public_transport=stop_position only, when proposed at Proposed_features/Public_Transport, however it has also been used with other railway=* and public_transport=* feature tags.

How to Map

  • Add the tag subway=no to a feature when subway trains do not stop there, even though they might otherwise be expected to.
