Jump to: navigation, search
Status: Draft (under way)
Proposed by: dieterdreist
Tagging: amenity=locker
Applies to:
Definition: a generic locker
Drafted on: 2017-02-16

Keyless locker 001


This proposal aims a getting a good definition for a generic locker. The proposed tag amenity=locker is already in use, as is the more specific amenity=luggage_locker, but both are currently without a wiki definition.


You can find lockers in many places, from airports and train stations to public libraries and museums, and they provide a useful service for travellers and others.


Add amenity=locker for a generic locker but consider amenity=luggage_locker for specific luggage lockers. Add fee=* and payment=* if you can. Other useful tags include

  • operator=*
  • opening_hours=* if the feature is not always accessible
  • capacity=* for the number of lockers represented by the object (this might eventually be refined into size classes)

Features/Pages affected

There are a few lockers tagged as amenity=vending_machine which contradicts the definition of vending machines ("dispensing items for payment"). Those lockers should ideally be retagged by local mappers.
