The survival and development of human-kind has relied on mobility and its prosperity is now inextricably linked to new modes, systems and technologies for transport across lands, seas and skies. But as well as huge benefits, transport has many negative impacts - road accidents, congestion, inequalities, pollution and climate change to name a few. The world’s attention has turned to how these impacts can be mitigated and transport is now at the heart of the social, economic, political and environmental agendas.

The challenges facing our use of transport can be addressed from a number of perspectives, and Transport Studies is at the junction of academic disciplines, from natural sciences to human behaviour. Ultimately, the study of transport deepens our understanding of the world we live in, how we interact with it and with each other.
