However, there are flights that ferry passengers among the cities of N'Djamena, Sarh, Mao and Maundou. Buses and bush taxis are operational between the Chad cities and these are the cheapest means of transport in Chad. The taxi drivers in Chad are usually given a 10 percent tip on the fare. Traveling between the cities by private transportation is allowed but is restricted due to certain genuine problems such as high price of petrol. All private vehicle drivers are advised to drive safely and have more than enough reserves of fuel because there is an acute deficiency of medical aid and petrol pumps in Chad.
Railways are not available in Chad, though negotiation is on to construct railways connecting Cameroon with Chad. Waterway transportation in Chad is restricted to the Logone River, which flows into the Lake Chad.
Though the internal roadways might not be well paved, there are roadways that connect Chad to Central African Republic, Niger, Nigeria and Cameroon. The transportation in Chad though inadequate is available with a little patience.
