Modes of Transportation of Travel
    The different mode of transportation are Air, land and water or sea travel, which incorporates rail and road & off-road transportation. Transportation could be a way for a people to travel from one place to another place. Withing the beginning of our time people travel by simply used their feet. Eventually, they began using animals like horses, camels and mules to ride on and go to their travel destinations. Once the wheel was invented, the wagon soon followed and so people were truly able to travel longer distances. Today there are many option to people for travel.

Different Modes of Transportation of Travel:

1. By Land
2. By Air
3. By Water

1. By Land:

    Land transport covers all land-based transportation systems that provide for the movement of people. We travel anywhere by Land by different types of transportation such as Bus, car, Rail, truck, bike etc. There are 2 kinds of land transportation, Rail & Road.

                        By Rail:

Modes of Transportation, Travel by Rail
Travel by Rail
    Rail transport means of conveyance of passengers by way of wheeled vehicles running on rail track, which known as a railway. Intercity trains are long-haul services connecting cities. Modern high-speed rail is capable of speeds up to 350 km/h (220 mph), but this requires specially built track. Rail transport is an energy-efficient and capital-intensive means of mechanized land transport and is a component of logistics. Due to the various benefits, rail transport is a major form of public transport in many countries. On many routes the railways are the fastest and cheapest way to get around. Rail travel is relatively safe almost as safe as air travel. The Bureau of Transportation Statistics publishes detailed historical safety information by mode of transport that suggests rail travel is not accident-prone, even when you include fatalities at highway-grade crossings and trespassers.
    Via trains can travel up to 160 kilometers an hour, while high-speed rail has a minimum speed of 200 kilometers an hour for diesel and 300 kilometers an hour for electrified systems. Taking the train is a cost-effective way of travelling, especially if you're going a relatively short distance. Generally speaking you can find the best ticket fares the earlier you book, so plan your train journey well in advance to take advantage.

                        By Road:

Modes of Transportation, Travel by Road
Travel by Road
    Road transportation is transport of passengers or goods using roads. A road is an identifiable route, way or path between two or more places. Roads are typically smoothed, paved, or otherwise prepared to allow easy travel; though they need not be, and historically many roads were simply recognizable routes without any formal construction or maintenance. In urban areas, roads may pass through a city and be named as streets. The most common road vehicle is the automobile; a wheeled passenger vehicle that carries its own motor/engine. Other users of roads include buses, trucks, motorcycles and bicycles. As of 2002, there were 590 million automobiles worldwide. Automobiles offer high flexibility combined with low capacity, and are considered the main source of noise and air pollution in cities. Buses allow for more efficient travel at the cost of reduced flexibility.
    Passengers are transported on roads either in individual cars or automobiles or in public transport by bus/coach. Special means of individual transport by road like rickshaws or velotaxis may also be locally available. A road is an identifiable route of travel, usually surfaced with gravel, asphalt or concrete, and supporting land passage by foot or by a number of vehicles. The most common road vehicle in the developed world is the automobile, a wheeled passenger vehicle that carries its own motor. As of 2002, there were 591 million automobiles worldwide. Other users of roads include motorcars, motorcycles, buses, trucks, bicycles and pedestrians, and special provisions are sometimes made for each of these. For example, the use of bus lanes give priority for public transport, and cycle lanes provide special areas of road for bicycles to use.

                    2. By Air:

Modes of Transportation, Travel by Airplane
Travel by Airplane
    Air travel is a form of travel in vehicles such as helicopters, hot air balloons, blimps, gliders, hang glider, parachuting, airplanes, jet aircraft, or anything else that can sustain flight. Air travel can be separated into two general classifications: national/domestic and international flights. Flights from one point to another within the same country are called domestic flights. Flights from a point in one country to a point within a different country are known as international flights. Travelers can use domestic or international flights in either private or public travel. Travel class on an airplane is usually split into a two, three or four class model service. U.S. domestic flights usually have two classes: economy class and a domestic first class partitioned into cabins. International flights may have up to four classes: economy class; premium economy; business class or club class; and first class. Most air travel starts and ends at a commercial airport. The typical procedure is check-in; border control; airport security baggage and passenger check before entering the gate; boarding; flying; and pick-up of luggage and limited to international flights another border control at the host country's border.
    A fixed-wing aircraft, typically airplane, is a heavier-than-air flying vehicle, in which the special geometry of the wings generates lift and then lifts the whole vehicle
    There are several different forms of aircraft today including cargo planes, fighter jets, commercial passenger planes, recreational single-engine planes, etc.  People use air travel as a way of moving from one place to another. Air transport is the fastest method of transport, Commercial jets reach speeds of up to 955 kilometers per hour (593 mph) and a considerably higher ground speed if there is a jet stream tailwind, while piston-powered general aviation aircraft may reach up to 555 kilometres per hour (345 mph) or more. The primary purpose of Airplanes is to allow travel across vast distances. Whether you are moving from one end of the country to another, or the other side of the world; flying is the best option. It's faster, cheaper than changing modes of transport and allows you to sit back and relax. Air travelers can reach most domestic destinations in hours; international travel seldom takes more than 24 hours. Travel also benefits the economy, as well as additional aid to safety and health. A plane's engines are designed to move it forward at high speed. That makes air flow rapidly over the wings, which throw the air down toward the ground, generating an upward force called lift that overcomes the plane's weight and holds it in the sky. ... The wings force the air downward and that pushes the plane upward.

                    3. By Water:

Modes of Transportation, Travel by Water
Travel by Water
    Water transport is the process of moving people, goods, etc. by barge, boat, ship or sailboat over a sea, ocean, lake, canal, river, etc. This category does not include articles on the transport of water for the purpose of consuming the water. There are various types of water vehicles. These include cruise ships, racing boats, off-road riding boats, windsurfer boats, riverboats, jet skis, battleships, raft boats, canoes, ferries, yachts, submarines, as well as tugboats. If a boat or other vessel can successfully pass through a waterway it is known as a navigable waterway. The need for buoyancy unites watercraft, and makes the hull a dominant aspect of its construction, maintenance and appearance. When a boat is floating on the water the hull of the boat is pushing aside water where the hull now is, this is known as displacement.
    Although the historic importance of sea travel for passengers has decreased due to the rise of commercial aviation, it is still very effective for short trips and pleasure cruises.
