  Bumbuli has 300 kilometres, a 41% share of Lushoto’s total road network length of 725 kilometres. Sixty-six kilometres or 22% of the regional roads that connect Lushoto to other places in the district pass through Bumbuli. Built to a minimum standard of earth and gravel surface with culverts, bridges and storm water drainage systems, regional roads are maintained by Tanroads and are passable throughout the year.

Bumbuli has 54% (158km) of the 292 kilometres of district roads. Made of gravel (75%) and earth (25%) with some culverts and bridges, 30% of these roads are totally impassable throughout the year while the rest are impassable only during the rainy season.

Human energy powers the walking and bicycles that are the predominant means of transportation for accessing farms (used 84% of the time), water (55%), markets (60%) and health services (56%).  

Cars and buses dominate as a means of transportation for social (53% of the time) and administrative activities (76% of the time). The predominant use of motorised transport for administrative activities suggests that these services may be located quite far from most of Lushoto’s residents.
