According to my Exchange.. the Microsoft Exchange Active Directory Topology is a required dependency.  Is that the same for you and is that service started?

Run Test-ServiceHealth and post the output here please.

As DMTechGroup said, AD Topology Service is required because the Transport service needs the site costs from AD which is performed through the AD Topology Service. the AD topology service (not running) will break a lot more things, but running Test-ServiceHealth will let you know what is started and what isnt.

Did you installed /Uninstalled anything from the server before this issue started ?

As Adam suggested Run Test-ServiceHealth and check if it reports any service in stopped state. If not then

1) Check application event viewer and check if it is reporting any error events related to Exchange server.
2) Check if any third party antivirus installed on this server. If yes then disable the antivirus services, reboot the server and then check if it helps.
3) disable antimalwarescanning and all third party transport agents from exchange powershell and check if it helps.

There was a dependency that was not started.  Neither of the ones suggested were it but both had me look for that.  Thanks
