Description

bus guideway

Guided buses are buses steered for part or all of their route by external means, usually on a dedicated track. This track, which often parallels existing roads, excludes all other traffic, permitting the maintenance of reliable schedules on heavily used corridors even during rush hours.

Guidance systems can be either physical, such as kerbs (in American and Canadian English, "curbs"), or remote, such as optical or radio guidance.

Do not use this on normal paved roadways that are designated for buses only. One correct tagging for those is highway=service, access=no, bus=designated.

Tagging

Tag Description Example
highway=bus_guideway
name=* Name of the guideway (if applicable).
operator=* Name of operator if known.
access=no
bus=designated
