Effective transportation systems are one of the pillars upon which the modern system of trade rests. No city is entirely self-sufficient - they all depend on a steady influx of food, raw materials, and even people to survive. On the other hand, they often produce more goods of certain types than they require or consume, so their merchants and craftsmen are strongly interested in finding ways of getting these goods to other people who will pay handsomely for them.

Thus, to keep the cities functioning, transportation cannot be allowed to be as slow and inefficient as in feudal times, when most traffic was catered to by horse-drawn carriages, primitive river barges, or even on foot. Fortunately, there is money to be made by providing transportation, and various groups organizations have risen up to the occasion in myriad ways.
