Metro Manila/Bus routes

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This page covers mapping of city bus routes through Manila, which include the main routes (which may run into nearby provinces), as well as local and express services outside the main network. All routes are operated by companies under franchise from the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), an agency tied with the Department of Transportation (DOTr).


Mapping recommendations

Stops

Map stops where there are signs, markings or sheds. It's also possible to map stops as requested by passengers, but such cases can be better handled by adding a "hail_and_ride" role to the road section in question.

public_transport=stop_position is best recommended on designated stops (i.e those with signs, markings, shed/shelter), usually at 400-500 m intervals. It's also possible to map the loading/unloading area with public_transport=platform and highway=bus_stop on the location of the sign or shed, which simplifies workflow and is compatible with the proposed simplified PTv2.

Routes

The network relation is named "Metro Manila City Bus Network", which lists all the main routes and other local bus networks. Routes are ordered by name and route number. The relation is part of the larger "Public Utility Bus" relation (network tag: network=PH:PUB), which covers also the other city bus networks and the wider provincial bus network (network=PH:PUB:provincial)

Routes, route master relations, and the main network relation must be tagged with network=PH:PUB:Metro Manila. As route operators can change due to franchise revocation/change or there are too many operators to list, this is recommended over using operator names on the network tag.

Specific naming schemes, unless route has unique name (e.g. BGC Bus routes), are:

  • Trunk routes (Routes 1-30, 32-35, and E EDSA Carousel): City Bus [number]: [starting point] → [endpoint] (e.g. City Bus 1: Monumento → Balagtas)
  • P2P and all other routes with ref: [operator] [City Bus/P2P] [ref]: [starting point] → [endpoint] (e.g. MetroExpress P2P TM: Vista Mall Taguig → Trasierra)
  • P2P and all other routes without ref: [operator] [City Bus/P2P]: [starting point] → [endpoint] (e.g. ALPS P2P: Batangas City → Ortigas Center)

The ref=* tag should contain the route number/code or, for most routes, a shorthand form of the route name used in the name=* tag.
