Abstract : Nine principles for the analysis of transportation systems are presented. The primary purpose of these principles is to identify the common threads underlying a great variety of seemingly disparate transportation problems, and so to stimulate the development of a 'transportation science.' The principles are equally applicable to urban transportation, megalopolitan transportation, developing country transportation, and strategic mobility. (Author)
