This tag can be used to mark the route of a tram (a.k.a "streetcar") service (eg the "Red line").
Tagging a tram route relation
Use one relation for each direction (or variation), so you need at least 2 relations for a tram line, both connected with a route master relation.
|ref||reference||The reference by which the route is known. e.g. 4, 4A, X13, etc. (recommended)|
|operator||operator||Name of the company that operates the route.|
for PTv2 please use:
<vehicle type> <reference number>: <initial stop> => <terminal stop>
|The name of the route or line.|
|network||local / regional network||Name (abbr.) of the network; e.g., BVG, RMV. (optional)|
|The amount of time from the first to last stop of the tram route.|
|The time between arrivals at any given station along the route, also known as the "service frequency".|
|colour||ex: red, #FFEEDD||The "official" color for the tram route. Identifiers in some cities. (optional)|
In PTv2, the roles route, forward and backward are invalid.
