Our research has aimed to elaborate on the ways in which movement, and the lack of it or its disruption, is socially, culturally and materially contingent. In this chapter, moments when mobilities become ‘disrupted’ in some way offer a lens through which socio-spatial interdependencies and mobile injustices are revealed. Our ethnographic data clearly illustrates that disruptions to mobilities are more often than not triggered by events outside of the transport system. Thus, we argue that we need to move beyond transport in understanding the intricacies of relational mobilities, and how they are negotiated and maintained at the micro level.
