|Tools for this tag|
This tag is used on relations which map the route of a minibus service.
The tag is useful instead of route=bus when they are being segregated into another class of service. They usually use a smaller vehicle (e.g. 20 seats or less with no standees allowed) instead of a large buses, and typically act as a feeder service or offer short haul connection within local community level. It is also common (but not a must) for passengers to be able to board/deboard these vehicles outside designated stops.
Examples of minibus services include Lähibusseja in Helshinki, Green Minibus in Hong Kong, and Community Bus in Japan.
