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.
