The ferry=* key provides additional description about ferry service on a ferry route or at a transport stop.

Public transport stops

With public_transport=*, this tag states whether a ferry stops at this location, using ferry=yes or ferry=no. However, amenity=ferry_terminal is much more frequently used for this feature. See also Public transport#Ferries.


With route=ferry, this tag can take the highway=* classification of the roads it connects, like a bridge.

Proposed features/ferry lists some other possible values for ferry=*, however these are not as commonly used (as of August 2015).


Values show the same types of roads, as in tag highway=*.
