PBS Bidding Tip: Persistent & Single Use Line Properties

Persistent Line Properties

When a persistent property is used in a layer, it will remain active throughout the remainder of your bid (unless Clear Bids is used). The following properties are persistent properties:

  • Maximize Credit
  • Maximize International Credit
  • Allow Double-Up on Date
  • Allow Multiple Pairings
  • Allow Multiple Pairings on Date
  • Allow Co-Terminal Mix in a Work Block
  • Waive 24 hours Rest in Domicile
  • Waive 30 hours in 7 Days
  • Waive Minimum Domicile Rest
  • Waive Carry-Over Credit (remains persistent regardless of using Clear Bids)
  • Avoid Person
  • Buddy With

For example, if you select to Waive Minimum Domicile Rest in layer 3, the system automatically applies this waiver to layers 3-7.

Single Use Line Properties

Each of the following line properties can only be used one time per layer. When these properties are used more than once in the same layer, it creates conflicting bid criteria, which will impact your award.

  • Target Credit Range
  • Work Block Size
  • Prefer Cadence on Day-of-Week
  • Commutable Work Block
