What Are the Safest Forms of Transportation?

Contact Us

Whether you’re traveling a short distance or going on a longer trip, you have various transportation options. But which form of transportation is the safest? The answer might surprise you. 

The Safest Transportation Options

Extensive research has been done to determine the safest forms of transportation. To figure out the best methods of travel, you’ll need to look at certain figures, including the number of accidents, injuries, and deaths throughout the years. 

The following are some of the least dangerous transportation methods to consider for your next trip.


Of all the forms of transportation, air travel seems to be the one that scares most people, and understandably so. The combination of traveling thousands of feet in the air and being cramped in tight quarters with a lot of other people can feel overwhelming. 

However, much to the surprise of many, air travel is the safest option. This is due in part to the minimal crashes and incidents that have resulted in injury and fatalities throughout the years. 

While it’s not impossible for any serious event to occur on a plane, historically, the number of occurrences is quite small. Therefore, next time you’re nervous about getting on a plane, remember you’ve made the safest choice. 


Traveling by train is another great option. Trains have multiple safety features, and train tracks are generally well-maintained. Additionally, trains are not as easily affected by bad weather. 

Because train accidents are so rare, they make the news. This makes it appear as though these crashes happen more frequently than they actually do. In reality, train collisions are not common, so trains are one of the safer modes of transportation. 


Traveling on the road can be unsafe for many reasons. Still, traveling by bus is a relatively safe choice. This includes all types of buses, from charter buses to school buses. 

Buses are designed differently than cars, making them more balanced and stable. Bus travel is four times safer than train travel (which is already a safe option) and 50 times safer than traveling by private vehicle. 

The Most Dangerous Forms of Transportation

Planes, trains, and buses are the better options for long and short-term travel. On the other hand, cars and motorcycles are the methods of transportation with the highest rate of accidents, injuries, and deaths. 


It’s no secret traveling by car is risky. Whether you’re simply commuting to work or going on a road trip, danger always exists on the road. In 2022, over 42,000 individuals died in car crashes, and approximately 5.4 million people were injured in accidents. 

Many factors can contribute to car accidents, from hazardous road conditions to malfunctions and defects. However, dangerous driving behaviors most often cause collisions, including speeding, distracted driving, and driving while impaired. 


Motorcycles are unsafe vehicles, as they offer no protection for riders in the event of an accident. While motorcycles only account for 3% of all registered vehicles and .07% of all miles traveled on U.S. roads, in a recent year, motorcycle riders accounted for 14.6% of all traffic-related fatalities and 13.5% of injuries.

No matter what method of transportation you elect, it’s impossible to avoid all kinds of accidents. If you suffer harm in a crash, get medical assistance right away, and do not hesitate to seek legal guidance and advice from a skilled personal injury attorney.
