Many modes of transportation have evolved and many more have gone extinct. the mode of our transportation has developed alongside the expansion of human understanding and culture. our greatest demands and challenges have, in turn, initiated our greatest inventive feats that have taken us from where we have come to where we intend to go. transportation has been the key to our most powerful sociology and teleological growth.
Long ago people did not have any means of transport. They used to move only on foot and carry goods either on their back or using animals.
For transport along water routes,boats were used from ancient times. To begin with,boats were simple logs of wood in which a hollow cavity could be made.
Invention of the wheel made a great change in modes of transport. The invention of the steam engine introduced a new source of power.Railroads were made for steam engine driven carriage and wagons in the 16th century.
The early years of 1900 saw the development of airplanes. These were later improved to carry passengers and goods. Electric trains,monorail,supersonic airplanes and spacecraft are some of the 20th century contributions to transportation.
Today’s transportation has been a significant leap forward, transforming the world into a small village,these includes:
CARS: The development of the world of cars has been a great speed, we are now witnessing many different shapes,types and designs of them,and the car companies are more competitive; to manufacture the latest cars and fastest and most comfortable and safe.
TRAINS: Trains are one of the most modern means of transport,through which thousands of people are transported through long distances and vast inside or outside their countries, and through which we transfer many different materials and goods and at a lower price compared to the means.
BUSES AND TRUCKS: Buses are one of the most important modes of mass transport, transporting many people to and from their workplaces.Buses are used as a pubic transport.it is cheap and saves time and effort to move around.
In conclusion, the evolution of transportation has enhanced door-to-door or warehouse-to-warehouse services, reduces cost, improves performance, makes it easy to transport goods to long distances etc.
