|Tools for this tag|
- City center services mainly underground.
- In North America, this tag is sometimes used for urban railway=light_rail and sometimes railway=tram systems, serving a single metropolitan area (not linking larger, multiple county areas like passenger=suburban services). While some railway=light_rail systems do have underground segments, many are above ground in a dedicated right-of-way, though sometimes in denser urban areas they are street-running trams. Examples: San Diego Trolley, San Francisco Muni Metro, Calgary CTrain, Mexico City Xochimilco Light Rail and Newark Light Rail.
Requires railway=* on a way or route=* on a relation. If route=* on a North America relation, passenger=urban may be a route=bus, but only if characterized as "Rapid Transit" (similar to a rail service: high-speed/high-capacity, dedicated lanes, limited stops, linking regional transit centers...); for example Los Angeles Metro's Orange and Silver Lines.
