mapping the greyhound.

Posted by skorasaurus on 8 November 2012 in English (English)

So, I was doing some quick mappinmg in downtown cleveland and saw that I hadn't added Cleveland's greyhound station yet.

I was wondering:

would this station fall public_transport=station or amenity=bus_station ? For now, I'm guessing public_transport=station

Although the bus_station tag is used far more often around the world.

Plus, with semantics: Greyhound is a private company, whose trips are longer than 60km, typically they're hundreds of km apart. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greyhound_Lines

Location: East Fourth Street Historic District, Warehouse District, Cleveland, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, 44115, United States of America

If Greyhound stops on the corner with no real infrastructure of its own, that's highway=bus_stop (or whatever the new scheme says). If they have a separate building, that's amenity=bus_station. Individual bus bays within the station are highway=bus_stop.

See here (which is a local public bus station, but the idea is the same): http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/relation/1209090
