Hi, I got a little problem here, i want to get the svg file of this render :

When I use Share option then export to SVG it only export the "Standard" layer, not the one i want (I want the public transport one simple with red lines). Is there any way to get this map and lines in svg or even just the background without lines ?

I have already checked this one : .

But it's not realy a solution to me since i don't want a simple screen. Thanks a lot for your time.

Tools like do allow you to download a larger image in the style you want. Standard layers on are always images. I'm not aware of any service that provides svg's for rendering. You might want to look into rendering vector tiles, see for an introduction:

@joost schouppe: No, does provide SVG export ("Share / Image format: SVG"). However, apparently it always exports the standard layer - hence the question.

I had no idea that was possible. Thanks for the correction @sleske and excuse the misinformation

Thanks for your answer, sadly as sleske said i want a svg of it... But seems like no one know how to do this.

Either it is something the OSM website should do, or it is something you could do if you have a different way to access the public transport layer. For the first, you could post an issue here ; for the second see if this leads you somewhere

For questions about the transport layer click the "Tiles courtesy of Andy Allan" link at the bottom of the screen. There are terms and contact information there.
