Finding Routes with Network Analyst in ArcGIS Pro

Routes in ArcGIS pro represent the quickest or shortest path along roads to visit stops or point locations. They can be basic point-to-point routes visited in the order you specify or in the order that minimizes overall travel time or distance. A route is associated with a local network dataset or a network service hosted in ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise. This video demonstrates how you can use the Route workflow on a network dataset to find the best route between two features in a network.
