Description (last modified by Klumbumbus)

I don't really like the recent addition.

  • railway=tram_stop and highway=bus_stop is the old tagging method. If the public_transport tagging schema would be rendered on the default style (technical barrier atm) I assume they would be declared as deprecated long ago.
  • according to the wiki the transport mode (bus=yes, tram=yes) is mapped on public_transport=stop_position and not on public_transport_platform

I gave up on trying to get rid of highway=bus_stop / railway=tram_stop a long time ago. As far as I'm concerned they are here to stay for the foreseeable future.

I asked - multiple times - it's simply not going to happen.

I want to have all the details of the bus stops on a node next to the highway, as this gives most information in a convenient object (that has coordinates), in the new scheme this is a public_transport=platform node.

Even when it is not a platform and even though it's not mapped as part of a highway it gets the following tags:

+ all the other details like name, ref, route_ref, operator, network and so on.

I'm not mapping all the stop_position nodes and on the ones that I do map, I'm not going to duplicate those details. KISS principle.

So when I'm generating those highway=bus_stop / public_transport=platform nodes from data from the operator, I known what the mode of transport is, I can thus conveniently add it bus=yes/tram=yes. At that point I don't have the stop_position node, nor do I even know there is one present for that platform node. So logically I add bus=yes/tram=yes on the nodes that should be the objects that represent our bus stops.

If it can't be in oneclick, I'll move it elsewhere. I just needed a convenient way to create


nodes from a button on the toolbar.

For creating stop_position nodes, where it makes sense to do (at the start and end of the itineraries) there is now a convenient map mode included in PT_Assistant. It will additionally split the way, if needed. This can't be accomplished with a simple preset.
