[OSM-talk] bus stop (correction)

If there is a physical bus stop ie a pole with a sign on it then map it as
a bus stop or rather whatever is the new way to map them.

On the stop should be a reference number of it exists.  These typically are
a number that is input to find out when the next bus is coming.

The route number to my understanding does not go on the bus stop as such
but on the relationship.  The bus stop may be tagged with a relationship.

Locally the bus system planners have a new computerised planning system so
the routes and numbers are forever being changed but the physical bus stops
remain the same.
