This is a description of relations used in the public transport tagging scheme. There are 2 variants, both regarding public transport stops, stations, halts, or similar: stop_area and stop_area_group.

A stop area consists of everything regarding the embarkation and disembarkation of a specific public transport vehicle or service. For example, a specific railway line, the adjacent platform, services on that platform, and information describing it (platform number, etc.).

Tags

These tags can equally apply to one stop area or a group of them.
