Transportation and roads in Hadhramaut [The Source: - ] Transportation :
Transportation in hadhramaut is very easy in the cities and towns.  There are buses running 20 hours a day, as well as taxies.

However, in rural areas it is totally the opposite, people walk to their intended destinations, but places are near by, which is their only advantage.

Land Transport
Yemen's modern land transport system has seen continued expansion in terms of
infrastructure and a change in new philosophy that evolved out of the economic
reform program. The reform program has contributed to liberalizing land transport
activities, allowing private sector companies to compete in the sector. The move has
resulted in lower passenger tariffs. There are now five private companies engaged in
freight transport and 15 private companies engaged in land passenger transportation.
Measures for privatizing the General Corporation for Land Transport should also
contribute to better quality and a more efficient land transport sector. Bylaws that
regulate passenger and cargo transport are being drafted and discussed.
Sea Transport

doubled  investment in the sector in excess of YR 48 billion by 2004. The investment
helped improve and expand capacities in the various ports., the government built a Container Port north of the Al-Mu’alla Port, of which the cost of the first stage reached YR 36 billion.
