Permanent Routes

The complete permanent listing for the USA is on this interactive easy-to-use map as found on this page of the RUSA website. Also visit this FAQ page on the RUSA site.

 

A route between 100 and 199 km is called  a “permanent populaire.”
A route over 200 km is called just a “permanent.”
(Confusing, right? Comes from France.)
