Transport can be described as a system for carrying people or goods from one place to another. Bullock cart, tonga, bicycle, scooter, motorcycle, jeep, car, bus and train are often used for travelling. There are three main modes of transport: land transport, air transport and water transport.
This mode of transport is divided into two types: roadways and railways. Trucks, buses, cars, bicycles, rickshaws, motorcycles, tongas, bullock-carts, etc., are means of roadways. There is a large network of roads in our country.
When we have to travel long distances within the country, we use railways. Trains run on railway tracks. Indian Railways is one of the largest rail networks in the world.
Boat, yacht, ship etc., are all means of water transport. Some run manually, while others run with the help of engines.
We can travel by an aeroplane, when we have to travel to another country or to another city. An aeroplane carries many passengers. Air travel is the most expensive but the fastest way to travel. Aeroplane, helicopter, glider, etc., are the means of air transport.
