Coherent transport behaviour has been demonstrated in experiments on atomic Bose-Einstein condensates driven by an external force through a quasi-one-dimensional optical lattice. We exploit the Wannier-function representation of band states to elucidate the relationship of such coherent transport with the weak-link Josephson effect and test the observability of multimode behaviour in condensates by numerical solution of the Gross-Pitaevskii equation.
