The key subway=yes/no is used to specify whether subway trains stop at a feature such as a train station or platform.

This key was approved for use with public_transport=stop_position only, when proposed at Proposal:Public Transport, however it has also been used with other public_transport=* tags.

How to map

  • This tag should be used solely within the public_transport=* schema. It should not be used in combination with any railway=* tags.
  • Add the tag subway=yes to a feature such as public_transport=stop_position to specify that subway trains stop at this feature. This is mainly useful when the same feature, such as a station, is shared by a railway=subway with a train and a highway=* with a bus, or with another railway=* type such as a trams or ligh_rail.
  • Add the tag subway=no to a feature when subway trains do not stop there, even though they might otherwise be expected to.
