The trolley bay (US: cart corral) is the place where shopping trolleys or luggage trolleys are located.

This tag refers to a shopping cart pushed by hand; for areas where one waits for a public transport vehicle, see highway=bus_stop and trolleybus=*.


For an outdoor use, draw an area delimiting the structure or place a node in it’s center and add the amenity=trolley_bay tag.

When the bay is located indoor and there is no Indoor Mapping, the tag trolley_bay=yes has also been used on the operator amenity.
