A transportation system may be defined as consisting of the fixed facilities, the flow entities, and the control system that permit people and goods  to overcome the friction  of geographical space efficiently in  order to participate in a timely manner in  some desired activity. 


At first glance this definition may appear to be either trivial or pretentious.
"It identifies the functional components of a transportation system "
After all,
 "overcoming the friction of geographic space"* 
is a very awkward way of saying "to move from point A to point B"! However, this definition reveals the breadth of transportation engineering and delineates the purpose and scope of this introductory text.

 It identifies the functional components of a transportation system (i.e., the fixed facilities, the flow  entities, and the control system) and encapsulates the fact that transportation provides the connectivity that facilitates other societal interactions•.
