Traffic v transport
The definition of traffic is the accumulated vehicles that use infrastructure as a means of travelling from place to place. It could refer to cars moving along roads and highways, aircraft flying in and out of airports, ships moving along charted routes, and so on.
The definition of transport is movement from one place to another using modes such as road vehicles, trains, aircraft, ships, and so on. Integrated transport involves combining different modes of transport to maximise ease and efficiency for the user in terms of time, cost, comfort, safety, accessibility and convenience.
