The closer a transport system is to its design capacity, the more it is congested, but the more it is profitable as well.

As capacity utilization rises, there is a need to provide additional capital for maintenance and eventually the expansion of transport infrastructure.

Sustainable transport refers to the broad subject of transport that is sustainable in the senses of social, environmental and climate impacts. Components for evaluating sustainability include the particular vehicles used for road, water or air transport; the source of energy; and the infrastructure used to accommodate the transport (roads, railways, airways, waterways, canals and terminals).
