It is examined a very simple, geometrically closed configuration concerning transport systems. The problem analyzed is a multi-objective optimization problem, in which an ever increasing set of visitors is urged to visit and move from a given set of sites on a closed path. An essentially kinematic approach is developed and the performance evaluation is obtained by means of a combinations of variables. It is also examined a particular realization in which one makes use of C_0-functions instead of discrete variables, in the spirit of classical mathematical physics. Some features of the model show relevant differences with others concerned with traffic and transport problems, for the presence of Diophantine integral evolution equations in place of statistical and/or numerical complex evaluation methods. This work is the first part of a more thorough discussion on dynamical equations in transport systems, including simulations and optimization schemes.
