Using the semiclassical quantum Boltzmann theory and employing the Dirac model with twist angle-dependent Fermi velocity we obtain results for the electrical resistivity, the electronic thermal resistivity, the Seebeck coefficient, and the Wiedemann-Franz ratio in near magic angle twisted bilayer graphene, as functions of doping density (around the charge-neutrality-point) and modified Fermi velocity $tilde v$. The $tilde v$-dependence of the relevant scattering mechanisms, i.e. electron-hole Coulomb, long-ranged impurities, and acoustic gauge phonons, is considered in detail. We find a range of twist angles and temperatures, where the combined effect of momentum-non-conserving collisions (long-ranged impurities and phonons) is minimal, opening a window for the observation of strong hydrodynamic transport. Several experimental signatures are identified, such as a sharp dependence of the electric resistivity on doping density and a large enhancement of the Wiedemann-Franz ratio and the Seebeck coefficient.
