Proposed features/Tag:park ride=hov
|Status:||Proposed (under way)|
|Definition:||A parking to leave a vehicle when joining a car- or vanpool|
Parkings where people forming a carpool can meet and riders may park their car/motor_cycle/bike, called "carpool parking" hereafter. I propose to extend the values for tag park_ride by 'hov' (high occupancy vehicle) to tag such parkings.
Carpool parkings are currently tagged very differently. A specific value would allow to render such parkings with a proper symbol and use them as meeting points in intermodal trip planners. In contrast to using a different tag like carpool, carpool_parking or amenity=car_pool, the proposed tagging would fit well in the semantics of the park_ride tag: leaving a car to ride a different transport mode.
Tags like carpool=yes, carpool=designated, hov=yes, hov=designated IMHO should be used, where (already formed) carpools/hovs are allowed or required, like workplace parkings reserved for high occupancy vehicles with 2+ passengers.
In Germany, there exist some hundred carpool parkings, e.g. about 100 in Baden-Wuerttemberg.
They are currently tagged very differently, e.g.
- amenity=parking, park_ride=no
- amenity=parking, park_ride=yes
- amenity=parking, park_ride=yes, carpool_parking=yes
- amenity=parking, park_ride=no, park_pool=yes
- amenity=parking, carpool=yes
In other parts of the world, in about ~120 cases, the tagging scheme amenity=car_pool, sometimes in combination with park_ride=yes, is used. Especially in France and the BeNeLux, parking=carpool is used often.
I suggest to add "hov" as new mode to the existing park_ride tag. Tags like carpool, carpool_parking or amenity=car_pool would become deprecated.
Nodes and areas with amenity=parking.
Carpool parkings are ususally indicated by dedicated sign, e.g. a sign "P+M" (Zeichen_316-50) in Germany.
Or in France, often a car with a driver and passengers is used.
What keys/tags and Wiki pages might this proposal affect if approved?
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dparking ('hov' should be added as value for tag park_ride, same for the localized pages)
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:amenity%3Dcar_pooling (proposed tag, IMHO should only be used for explicitly signed pick up places, not for parkings)
