Use amenity=parking to tag a facility used by the public, customers, or other authorised users for parking motor vehicles, such as cars and trucks, commonly known as a car park (British English) or parking lot (American English). See the Parking page for tags specific to parking for other types of vehicles and situations.

How to Map

The most common way to map a car park is to draw an area and tag it with amenity=parking. If you don't know the actual car park area or don't have time to draw it out then just tag a node node (but never use both a node and an area for the same facility). Car parks are a preset in most common editors, e.g. as "Car Parking" in iD, and can be accessed via text autocompletion.

Do also note that roads & footways etc into the parking area should connect to each other, not to the edge of the parking area (a very common mistake). Otherwise routing will not work properly.

Parking along the side of streets is tagged with parking:lane=*.

Additional Tags

Key Default Value Element Comment
amenity N/A parking node area Tag either an area or a central node, but not both.
All sub-tags below are optional.
name None * node area The name of the car park.
ref None * node area
access N/A yes; customers; permissive; private node area Distinction between public car parks, customers car parks (such as at cinemas, etc.), and private car parks (such as for staff in a business park). In this case, yes denotes a public car park.
motorcycle:parking=* None yes/no/covered node area Whether motorcycle parking is intended. For a designated area use amenity=motorcycle_parking.
parking None surface node area 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.
underground Underground parking.
rooftop One level of a parking deck on top of the building.
sheds Private hangars for vehicles, located close to owner's home. Usually constructed of profiled metal.
carports Structure used to offer limited protection to vehicles, primarily cars, from the elements (Carports on Wikipedia). Please consider adding building=carport.
garage_boxes One level buildings with individual boxes for one car, each, usually made of brick and metal. Usually, this area belong to garage cooperative with own name, chairman, budget, rules, security, etc.
park_ride None yes; no; bus; train; tram; metro; ferry node area Park and ride. Values of the key define connected means of transport. If unsure, use yes. (see Proposal)
fee no yes; no; interval node area Whether you have to pay a parking fee or not. If the fee must be paid only on certain hours, the same syntax can be used as for opening hours. (See the discussion page.)
supervised no yes; no; interval node area Whether the cars are guarded to prevent car theft and vandalism. If a guard is only present on certain hours, the same syntax can be used as for opening hours.
capacity None number node area The amount of available parking spaces, including all special parking spaces (e.g., disabled). Read talk page on this.
capacity:disabled None yes; no; number node area Defines whether or not dedicated disabled parking spaces are available, usually reserved only for holders of a disabled parking permit ('blue badge' in the UK). If known, the number of spaces can be specified. (replaces the key disabled_spaces=* see proposal).
capacity:parent None yes; no; number node area Defines whether or not dedicated parent and child parking spaces are available. If known, the number of spaces can be specified.
capacity:charging None yes; no; number node area Defines whether or not dedicated parking spaces with charging infrastructure for electric vehicles are available. If known, the number of spaces can be specified.
maxstay None 2h or 2 hours node area Time limit for parking (e.g., customer parking for 2 hours)
opening_hours None see key page node area Opening hours of car park.
operator None * node area Operator of car park.
website None * node area Website of car park.

Related Features

Several car park areas, each with one-way aisles

Standard method to draw parking of a complex size - ones that consists of disjointed areas, or because the area consists of multiple disjunct parts, or has holes is to use multipolygons.

Site Relation Proposal

It has been suggested that the type=site relation can be used with site=parking to group parking spaces and parking entrances together to form one parking facility, as described on Proposed features/parking. Currently however there is almost no support for this among either mappers or data consumers (analysis) - amenity=parking is far more widely used.

Rendering

The Standard tile layer currently renders the "P" logo and a grey background for parking areas (or the "P" in a building style if the building tag is set). An ITO Map layer exists which shows car parks, and whether they have been tagged with a capacity. The "P" logo is fainter if access=* tag other than access=yes is applied.
