This is the overlay drawing based on the town street map capturing the drive time between sites on the various bus routes. Since the two buses would drive different routes to deposit and collect passengers all about town, we needed to calculate all possible drive times and then choose the segments that worked. Both buses were empty most of the time as they shuttled between locations and transported two programmatically distinct yet individually coherent audiences.
