We begin by considering why, how and how much transport matters, both in itself and in relation to a whole host of public policy areas including economic development, social inclusion, health and wellbeing, (im)migration, education, crime / law and order, housing and the environment. We set out and explain the aim of the book, and provide an overview of transport policy over the last 50 years by way of context for a summary of what follows in the remainder of the book. We conclude by considering key themes that emerged in authors’ discussions during the process of putting the book together.
