I'm not sure this is quite the place for this discussion but Europe also
has some bus routes that pick up and drop off on request.  Just don't map
none existent stops.

Ottawa Canada has fixed stops as do many other locations in North America.

I suggest you try to map following the wiki map features.  If someone is
changing your tags then discuss the matter with them as is the traditional
way to resolve the problem.
