How to use
The highway=platform tag is sometimes used for places at which passengers wait for or board a public service vehicle; highway=bus_stop is also used for this purpose (see Tag:highway=bus_stop for more detailed description of options for this tag). For railways the equivalent tag is railway=platform.
A new standardised tag (public_transport=platform) was approved in April 2011 within Proposed_features/Public_Transport to identify waiting points across all transport modes. It will, however, take time for down-stream services to adapt this new tagging scheme, so in the meantime, the 'traditional' tagging should be included.
