Views on the concepts of well-being and the role which transport plays in bringing some measure of satisfaction to individuals are presented. Both an ideal but hypothetical approach and possible second best approaches are considered as methods for interpreting the relationship between transport and well-being. The problems encountered when wishing to make necessary comparisons between individuals are discussed. Conclusions are offered with regard to the value of considering classes of activities and the priorities attached to them. (TRRL)
