Ticket to Ride
Looking at the map and the available destination tickets there seem to be a pattern:
all but two tickets have a value equal to the minimum distance in wagons.
 
The two exceptions are Sault St. Marie-Oklahoma City (9) which can be built with just 8 wagons, and Seattle-New York (22) which can be built with only 20 wagons.
 
Looking at the 30 tickets does it appear that some cities are more important than others. Below are all the cities listed alfabetically and after frequency, with the frequency in brackets "()" and route values after the equal sign "=".
