The following article outlines transport in Kiribati.
There are 670 km of highways in Kiribati (1996 est.) of which 27 km are paved in South Tarawa (2001). There are no railways in Kiribati.
Ports and harbours include Banaba, Betio, English Harbor, and Kanton. There is a small network of canals, totaling 5 km, in the Line Islands. The Merchant marine includes 1 ship of 1,000 GRT or over. One merchant ship connects, from time to time, the Line Islands (Kiritimati, Fanning and Washington) and makes stops en route at the Phoenix Islands.
2 small aeroplanes fly out of the Gilbert Islands, except for Banaba.
Bonriki International Airport is currently undergoing an upgrade program to bring airport security up to IATA standards - this includes the construction of a fence around the entire perimeter.
