Transport is a sphere of economic activity and social life where paradoxes appear at every step, except that they are disregarded and they are not called by name. It is therefore worth making transport professionals sensitive to the paradoxality of many phenomena, especially if it is important for the formulation of relevant theories and scientific principles. Paradoxes related to the development of the transport infrastructure have been described in the literature, but there are far more paradoxes in the behavior of transport users. A number of subjective theories and hypotheses that paradoxically do not find practical implementation are formulated in the theory of economics and transport policy. Paradoxical dilemmas should be resolved rather in favor of real facts than seemingly logical theories.
