This feature has been labeled as deprecated. The recommended replacement is: access=yes.
Access values are used to describe the legal access for various facilities.
access=public was added to a few features that provide access to the general public. Many were amenity=parking or amenity=toilets added with a preset in the iD or JOSM editor which offered this tag as a suggestion. However, the tag access=yes is much more common and has the same meaning. This tag is no longer offered by either editor, and it is not usually supported by database users. Usage is no longer increasing, as of mid-2019.
