What is Transport Geography? | The Geography of Transport Systems

Author: Dr. Jean-Paul Rodrigue

Transport geography is a sub-discipline of geography concerned about the mobility of people, freight and information and its spatial organization considering attributes and constraints related to the origin, destination, extent, nature and purpose of movements.

The unique purpose of transportation is to overcome space, which is shaped by a variety of human and physical constraints such as distance, time, administrative divisions and topography. Jointly, they confer a friction to any movement, commonly known as the friction of distance (or friction of space). In an ideal world, transportation would come at no effort in terms of cost and time and would have unlimited capacity and spatial reach. Under such circumstances, geography would not matter. In the real world, however, geography can be a significant constraint to transport since it trades space for time and money and can only be partially circumscribed. The extent to which this is

#KAGStory

“Here in Bethlehem, we have been supplying Oxygen to the hospitals in New York City and New Jersey. All of our drivers have stepped up their game and have gone above and beyond without question.

Two drivers, in particular, have shared stories with me that made them feel something they never felt before.”

1️⃣ Tim Barnes was delivering in New York City and the fire department was clearing a call. When they noticed our truck coming down the street, they stood together and clapped and gave our driver a thumbs up because they knew he was delivering Oxygen to the hospitals.

Tim said, “As I drive by the firehouse, I look at them as heroes and when they cheered as I drove by, I felt like I was the hero. I was honored to have them do that. It made me feel

A Transportation Vision for 2020: Is It 20/20?

WHAT do you call a long bullet-shaped vehicle with rubber tires that zips along roads, stops for traffic lights and carries lots of people?

Whatever you call it, don’t call it a bus.

After four years of study and a cost so far of $6.5 million, engineers working on the Long Island Transportation Plan 2000 are presenting their preliminary proposals to manage Long Island’s traffic 20 years from now. The linchpin of their solution is a transit system with a sleek bus that’s a dead ringer for a monorail car except for the tires. But transportation officials are loath to use the ”B” word to describe it.

”People have an image of a bus,” said David Rettig, the Long Island planning director for the State Department of Transportation, which is overseeing the study. ”A bus is crowded, it smells of diesel fumes, it’s stuck in traffic. That’s not happening with
