This paper examines how nonrepresentational theories of practice can expand our understanding of the ways in which mobility transformations take place in Sydney, Australia. The first part of the paper shows they are most frequently evaluated according to linear, chronological understandings of temporality. The second part of the paper shows how the virtuality of the past inheres in and becomes actualised in the present through movements, events, and milieus—flagging the significance of habit memory, recollection memory, and tertiary memory, respectively. The paper questions what constitutes a mobility transformation; it expands our comprehension of the agencies of transformation affecting life in this sphere; and it challenges us to rethink the ontological unit upon which macropolitical interventions are usually focused
