|A tram stop is a place where a passenger can embark / disembark a tram.|
|Rendering in OSM Carto|
|Used on these elements|
|Tools for this tag|
This tag is one way to mark a tram stop. It is used on tram tracks (railway=tram) and also on light rail tracks (railway=light_rail) where the halt resembles more a tram stop than a railway halt (railway=halt).
How to map
Insert a node with railway=tram_stop and name=* on the tram track (railway=tram) at the position where the stop is located.
In contrast to highway=bus_stop this tag is tagged on the track because tram tracks are usually one-way and different directions don't have to be considered.
|railway=tram_stop||Mandatory||Indicating that it is a tram stop.|
|name=*||Recommended||Name of the tram stop.|
|public_transport=stop_position||Optional||Indicating that it is a public transport stop.|
|tram=yes||Optional||See the Public Transport Schema.|
|network=*||Optional||Name of the network if exists.|
|operator=*||Optional||Name of the operator if exists.|
|shelter=*||Optional||'yes' if there is a shelter on the stop.|
Use with light rail systems
This tag can also be used on light rail tracks (railway=light_rail) where "the halt resembles more a tram stop than a railway halt (railway=halt)."
