Abstract: Geography as a social science is concerned with the analysis of the spatial newlinedimensions of social phenomena and with the synthesis of natural as well as social newlinevariable within a regional frame. The subject matter of Geography is changed with newlineparadigm shift from Determinism to Spatial Organization. Spatial Organization newlineparadigm initiated after the quantitative and theoretical revolution in Geography. It is newlinethe 1960s period, when the Transportation Geography, has emerged out from the newlinerealms of Economic Geography, which is main branch of Human Geography. newlineGeographers take interest in transportation due to two main reasons: Transport newlineinfrastructure, terminals and networks occupy an important place in space and newlineconstitute the basis of a complex spatial system, second since Geography seeks to newlineexplain spatial relationships, networks are or specific interest because they are the newlinemain support of these interactions. Simply, transport geography is a sub-discipline of newlinegeography concerned about movement of freight, people and information. It seeks to newlinelink spatial constraints and attributes with the origin, the destination, the extent, the newlinenature and the purpose of movements (Rodrigue, et. al., 2006). As Hoyle and Knowle newlinedescribed, transport geography is concerned with the explanation from a spatial newlineperspective of the socio-economic, industrial and settlement framework within which newlinetransport networks develop and transport systems operate (Hoyle and Knowles, 1998). newline
