A transportation system can be defined as the combination of elements and their interactions, which produce the demand for travel within a given area and the supply of transportation services to satisfy this demand. This definition is general and flexible enough to be applied to different contexts. The specific structure of the system is defined by the problem itself (or class of problems) for whose solution it is employed.
