Luggage locker
Status: Draft (under way)
Proposed by: dieterdreist
Tagging: amenity=luggage_locker
Applies to:
Definition: a luggage locker

Proposal

This proposal aims a getting a good definition for a luggage locker. The proposed tag amenity=luggage_locker is already in use, as is the more generic amenity=locker, but both are currently without a wiki definition. This tag should not apply to staffed places, which keep your luggage, but don't lock it into individual lockers. It is for lockers which can be accessed individually and in person.

Rationale

You can find luggage lockers in many travel related places, from airports and train stations to youth hostels, and they provide a useful service for travellers and others.

Tagging

Add amenity=luggage_locker for a luggage locker but consider amenity=locker for less specific lockers (e.g. too small for luggage). Add fee=* and payment=* if you can. Other useful tags include

  • operator=*
  • opening_hours=* if the feature is not always accessible
  • capacity=* for the amount 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.
