[Tagging] Feature Proposal - RFC - Walkingbus_stop

Here in Belgium the public transport operator has school services that run
once or twice in each direction per school day. Anyone with a valid ticket
can take them though. So no exclusivity for school children.

There are other buses, organised by the schools themselves, which I also
wouldn't map. But those also don't have stops marked on the streets. They
simply go and pick up the children near their homes. They are mostly for
children with special needs though.
