Transportation in Guyana


Roadways measured an estimated 7,970 km in 2002, of which only 590 km were paved. As of 2003, Guyana had about 28,000 passenger cars, and 13,000 commercial taxis, trucks, and buses.

Water-borne passenger and cargo service between these cities is carried out by a government-owned transport service via the Essequibo and Berbice rivers. Georgetown is the main port, while New Amsterdam accommodates coastal and small ocean-going vessels. Springlands, on the Corentyne River, is the main port for service with Suriname. In 2010, the merchant fleet had 10 ships of 1,000 GRT or more. Three rivers, the Berbice, Demerara, and the Essequibo are navigable by ocean-going vessels for 150 km, 100 km and 80 km, respectively.

There were an estimated 117 airports in 2013, only 11 of which had paved runways as of 2013. Georgetown's Timehri International Airport is served by several international carriers. Guyana Airways Corp, a government company, operates domestic and international air service. In 2001 (the latest year for which data was available), 47,800 passengers were carried on scheduled domestic and international flights.
