Service area (also known as travel plaza, rest and service area, service station) are places along a road, usually a motorway or dual-carriageway, where a driver can stop to refuel their vehicle have a rest or take refreshments. They usually consist of, at minimum, a petrol station, parking facilities, a place to eat and some public toilets. Also commonly found at services are shops, showers and an ATM. These are often located in the USA on Turnpikes (including Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana), and all along the Tollway system of Japan (where exiting and reentering the toll system would incur additional tolls), and are Abbreviated SA.

For a rest area with no services, use highway=rest_area.

How to map

Draw an area area around the grounds or place a node node at the centre of the grounds.

Tags to use in combination

  • name=* - The name of the services.
  • operator=* - The company or organization that the services are run by.
  • toilets=yes/no - if there are toilets

More features needed

The junction way from the highway is mapped with highway=motorway_link and where pedestrians are allowed it is tagged highway=service. Another addition such as service=parking_aisle is only suitable for subordinate tramlines in the parking lot.

The exit node to the rest area is mapped with highway=motorway_junction. Add name=* in the form "Rest area xyz". But no ref=* is set.
