We review the processes involved in the transport of bacteria in the saturated subsurface. Our goal is to communicate priority topics in the basic science of bacterial transport processes, and this leads to a focus on the nanometer to micron scales of observation. The scope of this review is the set of physical, chemical, and biological processes involved in the transport of individual cells, and the constitutive theory underlying conceptual depiction of these processes.
