In addition, Bus visitors will be invited to share their thoughts on what it means to be an American for C-SPAN's "Voices from the Road" project.
C-SPAN Marketing Manager Heath Neiderer said, "We are excited for the opportunity to meet, engage and share our resources with residents along our 'Southern Swing' and hearing from people about what being an American means to them. Some of the cities on this tour haven't seen our Bus in many years. We hope they enjoy their experience aboard our interactive mobile classroom and discover new ways of keeping well-informed."

Bus visitors engage with C-SPAN representatives and interactive tools to learn about the unique public affairs programming and online resources such as C-SPAN Classroom - the network's free membership service for teachers and students.
