Used to identify roads which contain a shared lane marking, or sharrow, to indicate that the travel lane is shared by bicycles and other vehicles.

The road markings are usually there to highlight a cycle route or to remind drivers that you can cycle there, still allowing vehicles to drive or even park on them.


In the Netherlands and Belgium in particular, the tag is also used to indicate suggestion cycle lanes (Fietsstrook#Fietssuggestiestrook_in_Nederland on Wikipedia). To distinguish between the two, it can additionally be tagged with cycleway:lane=pictogram for sharrows or cycleway:lane=advisory for suggestion cycle lanes respectively.

See Proposed features/shared lane for more detail.

How to map

Add the tag cycleway=shared_lane to a highway=*.

If there are sharrows only on one side, add:

To explicitly tag markings on both sides of the road, add:

To differentiate between different types, add cycleway:lane=pictogram/advisory (see the Key:cycleway:lane page).
