Seattle has started designating floor parking areas around bike stands to accommodate dockless bike shares:

floor parking around bike stands on sidewalkfloor parking around bike stands in street parking lanefloor parking around bike stands in intersection

How should these be tagged? One node for bicycle_parking=stands and a second node (or area?) for bicycle_parking=floor?

This looks like a single bicycle parking amenity. As these usually have only had a single style parking there does not seem to be very much usage for areas with different kinds of parking.

By analogy with similar situations, I'd tentatively suggest:

  • Map the area delineated by the white line as amenity=bicycle_parking, covered=no, capacity=10 (my estimate)
  • Use something like bicycle_parking:stands=6 or bicycle_parking:stands=yes with capacity:stands=6
  • Something similar for the floor parking (although this tag does not seem to be in use, bicycle_parking=surface seems the closest of in-use tags).
  • Also it may be possible to use something like bicycle_parking=mixed to show that there are multiple types; or just stands;surface.

I would suggest perhaps doing a more detailed consultation on the tagging mailing list: there are people there much more familiar with these tagging patterns.

If the free/surface/floor parking is only for bike share then I'd fall back to your original suggestion, but tag the free parking as amenity=bicycle_rental.
