    Roads are the main means of transportation in India. India is the second largest road network in the world, with a total length of approximately 589,700 km (as of 2017). India's road network density is about 1.80 km per km², much higher than the United States, China, Brazil, and Russia. About 85% of passengers and 70% of freight are processed by road yearly.  The Indian National Railways system operated by the Government of India is the third largest railway system in the world. The total length of the Indian Railways is 68,155 km, and as of 2019, it carries 844 million passengers and 123 million tons of cargo each year.  Pipelines carry crude and refined petroleum, fuels like oil, natural gas and biofuels. Solids are also carried in slurry form.
    India is blessed with a vast network of waterways in the shape of rivers, canals, backwaters, and streams, as well as long coastlines accessible by sea and sea. The country has a 14500km inland waterway divided into 111 national waterways by the Indian Waterway Authority. Due to its  7517 km coastline, India has one of the largest commercial fleets, ranked 19th in the world.  Air transportation is the fastest means of transportation and is much more expensive than other means of transportation.
