Use amenity=motorcycle_parking tag to identify a designated area for parking motorcycles, used by the public, customers or other authorised users

How to map

Use a node node for smaller motorcycle parks, or an area area for a larger motorcycle park (but not both for the same facility) and tag it with amenity=motorcycle_parking. If you don't know the actual motorcycle park area or don't have time to draw it out then just tag a node.

Key Value Description
name * Name of parking.
operator * Operator of the parking.
ref * Reference number of the parking lot if any (e.g. "P01").
covered yes/no If parking if covered.
access yes/customers/permissive/private Distinction between public parking lots, customers parking lots (such as at cinemas etc.), and private parking lots (such as for staff in a business park). In this case, yes denotes a public parking lot. The addition of "customers" was disputed for some time (see discussion), but it's widely used now.
capacity * The number of motorcycles that can be parked here.
fee yes/no Whether you have to pay a parking fee or not. Default value is no. If the fee must be paid only on certain hours, the same syntax can be used as for opening_hours (see the discussion page).
parking surface A dedicated area for parking consisting of one level of parking on the ground.
multi-storey Two or more levels of parking decks in a building structure. Please consider adding the appropriate building=* tag, if it is purpose-built for this purpose, building=parking is the most popular value.
