|This tag is used for bad reasons (issues with a routing engine). A highway reserved for buses should be tagged with bus=yes and access=no|
Some bus companies using OSM for routing exclude all highway=service from their routers unless they are also tagged service=bus, so in order for these routers to work appropriately, service lanes at bus stations used by the mentioned companies need to be tagged with this.
