Mobility is fundamental to economic and social activities, including commuting, manufacturing, or supplying energy.

The Geography of Transport Systems is concerned about movements along with the infrastructures, institutions and corporations supporting them. It tries to link spatial constraints and attributes with the origin, the destination, the extent, the nature and the purpose of movements. It is divided in nine chapters, each covering a specific conceptual dimension including networks, modes terminals, international transportation, urban transportation and environmental impacts. Each chapter also covers methodologies linked with transport geography such as accessibility, spatial interactions, graph theory and Geographic Information Systems for transportation.

Aimed at an undergraduate audience, the text provides a comprehensive introduction to the field with a broad overview of its concepts, methods and areas of application. A particular emphasis has been placed in the development of web based didactic material that can be incorporated in lectures such as PowerPoint slides, exercises, databases and GIS datasets.
