[Talk-transit] Ideas for a simplified public transportation scheme

Why does all the info need to be in one node and not on a way? Also, if there is a platform, it should be a polygon, not just a line. That should not be to micro to be mapped in true dimensions. If that object is the true only thing that defines the stop, it should be able to have the tags in every form (except multi-polygon relations)

The additional nodes make the confusing clutter!

I agree that platforms should be mapped as ways only if they physically exist. What I'm saying is that I don't object if someone does map such an object, but the information from the transit agency should always be contained in a node, not a way, as Jo mentioned.

I usually place the node inside the closed way if it exists, but another possibility (and necessary if it's an unclosed way) is to make the node a part of the way.

Please, please only map a platform /if/ it's a physical structure.
Imaginary meta-objects  don't work in OSM
