[Tagging] Tourist bus stop

Thank you for making a proposal, Francesco.

“A tourist bus stop is a stop reserved to tourist buses.”

The main issue is describing the term “tourist bus” clearly.

The related wiki page Key:tourist_bus says:

“The key tourist_bus=* is used to tag legal access restrictions on roads
for buses that are not acting as public transport vehicle (for the latter
see bus <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:bus>=*).”

“This tag originated from a literal translation of the Italian word Autobus
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:tourist_bus#cite_note-1>, which
can be understood to be synonymous to a coach.”


So is “tourist_bus=yes” identical to “coach=yes”?

Does this include “minibuses” and large “vans” used as vehicles for hire?

I assume it excludes intercity buses or buses to national parks, if they
run on a regular schedule and sell tickets to the general public?
