There are many types of transportation in our world today. The various modes of transportation for passengers include traveling by car, traveling by bus, traveling by motorbike, traveling by boat, traveling by plane, traveling by train, and in some remote areas of the world, traveling by horseback or by foot.

Transportation has definitely come a long way. In the past, transportation was much more restrictive, much more demanding in time, and many times required the assistance of animals. The pony express was one of the fastest methods of letter delivery in the centuries past in our country. If you wanted good shipped from another state, it wasn't until the advent of the train that this became common place. Prior to the train, shippers had to rely upon the wagon to transport goods.
