Do you know if that applies to rail transport in Britain as well? Reading the english wikipedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Railway_platform one may conclude that the term platform is then used interchangably for waiting area and specific areas on the vehicle _or_ that there is a difference in usage of the term across modes of public trans- portation. cmuelle8 _______________________________________________ Tagging mailing list Tagging@openstreetmap.org https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/tagging
