Today the move back to freight going on trains is very much the modern trend across the world. Using rail transport is very efficient, with economies of scale and energy efficiency.

The obvious problem with this form of transportation was inefficiency. Transporting cargo would take weeks, even months, to cross the Atlantic to deliver goods that some cultures depended on. Modern nuclear-powered vessels are able to conquer seas in a fraction of the time it would a sail-powered vessel. Furthermore, the most impressive and innovative way goods are transported today is by air. With this advancement, goods are able to travel across earth in a matter of days.

Our world and it’s modern technology has greatly helped in advancing and innovating diverse types of transportation, all serving different purposes, in a wide variety. It is now easily possible to travel through all different mediums such as through land, water, air, and even outer space using multiple transportations. However, with all the benefits that transportation brings with it, it also imposes major cons and has created several problems, such as the release of greenhouse gas emissions, traffic congestion which causes loss of time, accidents etc. People, majorly those in urban environments, are faced with multiple transportation choices and

Therefore reduces the costs of river transport compared to road transport. The river transport in the Arab countries is marginal, so as to limit its rivers and the lack of its abundance and the presence of natural obstacles in the track. The rivers that could be suitable for navigation are the Tigris River in parts of the south, the River Nile in parts of the
Some flight trials were successful and some flight trials were failed. In this paper, advantages and disadvantages of air transportation will be discussed .

2.4 Important of bus transportation According to Desaulniers & Hickman (2007) said to reduce pollution, reduces traffic congestion and as well as increasing the mobility of the population is a social mission to agencies that related with public transit.
