BUS STOP

Posted by DOM91 on 20 June 2012 in French (Fran├žais)

I encounter some problem to create a bus stop. I saw that some people use the key'name' to describle the line and the direction. I suggest to create a key for the line as 'line' for the number of the line and another key to describe the direction like a relation 'from'='name' (= bus stop start) 'to'='name' (=bus stop arrival). I don't know if it's the correct way to send my idea so please give me the correction if it's the wrong way. Thank you. Best regards.

The mailing list of your country would be a better place to ask your question :

Also note that there is a rather new tagging schema being implemented: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/Public_Transport

This makes use of the 'name' tag to denote the name of the stop, and for the directions, it uses a relation.

Also look at this: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Bus_stop

Note that there are differences with the old schema. In the old schema, you had to place stops next to the highway, and now you have to place a stop on the highway, with a platform next to it, and link the two with a relation.

The route relation has a name like Brussels-Leuven, so that denotes the start and end (note that Leuven-Brussels will be another relation). And it has a begin position and an end position.

But if you are unsure, contact the mailing list, as Georges said.
