In transport it is axiomatic that passenger comfort is extremely important. This paper considers the concept of comfort and its relationship to the passenger's other travel experiences. The papers which follow in this special issue are then introduced and briefly discussed. The paper concludes with a section which considers factors in the transport environment likely to influence comfort but which have not been covered elsewhere in this issue. These factors include: temperature, ventilation, illumination, photic stimulation, pressure changes on the ear, journey length and task impairment. /Author/TRRL/
