The paper critiques the innovation processes that yield transportation's technologies. It identifies supply, transportation, and user systems in the following manner: supply systems provide fuel, pavements, and other inputs to transportation activities; transportation systems move things; and user systems combine transportation with other activities for socially useful purposes. The paper provides a short review of the emergence of today's systems to show that technological advances may improve the provision of old services, offer new ways of doing old things, or induce qualitative changes that enable doing new things.
