Route Planning

There are a number of cities that have requested that we visit them OR have previously been gracious hosts (providing meals, great projects, press coverage, etc.) Visit the Important PIFT Cities Doc for that list.
We also have a list of places that we visit frequently. Usually larger cities, we want to ensure that no bus is visiting 5 popular cities on their route because it may result in other buses not being able to visit any. Buses that have too many of these cities may be asked to change their route to ensure that all Bus Cores have a route they are excited about. Check out the second tab of the Important PIFT Cities Doc to make sure your route won't have any conflicts!
