In Germany, mappers also use amenity=bus_station for interchange hubs of
local buses where multiple buses stop at the bus station at the same
time. Towns usually have one or two large bus stations (often next to
the train station), called "Zentraler Omnibusbahnhof" (ZOB) or
"Busbahnhof" (central bus station; Bahnhof = station).

I think that the the second meaning could be removed.
