Following a statement of current political issues in transport at the local, national and international levels, existing theory relating location and movement to transport facilities is outlined. The connections between social and economic change and improved mobility are explored and historical examples discussed, including the 19th century extensions of settlement frontiers and 20th century urbanization. Political issues are translated into practical problems and the methodology required for a solution of these is developed, including the geographical representation of a transport system and its computational manipulation.
