[Tagging] roundtrip

The real question, which as far as I can tell you haven’t answered, is: Does that same vehicle, after completing its route, start at the beginning of the same route again?


Based on your description, the route as mapped is A1->B->C->D->E->A2.


Can I get on at E, stay on the vehicle, and get off at B? (In which case I would expect that after finishing at A2, the vehicle goes to A1, and you can remain on board during that time. A2 may be (but doesn’t have to) an “exit only” and A1 and “entry only” stop).


If yes, then it is roundtrip=yes. And you shouldn’t just remove an existing tag that actually applies.

If no, then the roundtrip=yes is wrong and should be removed.

An example of a (bus) route that goes out and comes back to the same location. It's not circle shaped at all, but that shouldn't matter for circular route.


I removed roundtrip=yes and replaced it with





If the last way wouldn't be in there, closed_loop would be yes. But the first and the last bus stops are not exactly opposite one another.

Oh, you sweet, summer child.  Someone's never tried to take a suburban route in the US, even in a "transit oriented" American city...
