|Tools for this tag|
The key tourist_bus=* is used to tag legal access restrictions on roads for buses that are not acting as public transport vehicle (for the latter see bus=*). This tag originated from a literal translation of the Italian word Autobus turistici, which can be understood to be synonymous to a coach=*.
However in presets in editors such as JOSM and partly in the wiki, this tag has been denoted to mean buses for tourists specifically, not buses for long-distance travel generally. Due to the lack of clarity here, consider using coach=* for access restrictions for long-distance travel or inter-city buses instead. As of June 2018, the vast majority of this tag's usage stems from users that check or uncheck every box in the JOSM preset for access restrictions, so it is very difficult to determine how exactly this tag is understood.
For values see access=*.
