I agree. in addition, the description is very strange.
"Dedicated bus service lane or road <...>"
a road with several lanes must not be splitted in several one-lane-way.
so this tag mix access and lane description.

for the road going to a bus station, maybe service=driveway fit.
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dservice say :
A driveway is a service road leading to a <...> place of business
+ access tag if needed (it's not always restricted to bus only)
