Is it possible that motorists using a road or bridge will have to pay a toll to do so?

- Lendosa — many major highways and bridges require users to pay a toll.
- Listonian Free State — most major highways require users to pay a toll.
- Shaelia — there are toll roads and bridges. National transportation network roadways and bridges are free to access. States are permitted to require a toll to use any state-funded roadway or bridge.

- Lendosa — taxi and bus operators are required to be licensed.

- Xochimechatl — there is little to no regulation of taxis and private buses, and what little regulation does exist is often ignored.
Private ownership of highwaysEdit
In some countries, private companies may build and operate highways (presumably generating profit from toll revenue). Sometimes, there will be joint ventures between private companies and the government for this purpose.
- Listonian Free State — theoretically possible, but in practice very few such projects have advanced to construction.
- Xochimechatl — all jurisdictions allow privately-owned highways either explicitly or by default, although only a few such projects have gone ahead (all of which have been public-private parnerships).
- Aethelnia — only the federal government may build and own motorways.
- Lendosa — only the government may build and own highways.
- Mari'im — only the government may build and own highways.
- Porto Capital — Private ownership of transportways is not possible.
- Shaelia — private ownership of highways, roadways, and/or bridges is not possible.
- Trinia — only the government may build and own highways, although this is more an accidental consequence of the law's phrasing than a deliberate policy choice.
Private ownership of rail transportEdit
Can rail transport (the tracks, the trains, or both) be privately owned?
- Aethelnia — all track and infrastructure in the country is government-owned, most railway services are also governemnt-owned (and free-of-charge), but increasingly passenger operations are franchised to individual private-sector operators and the freight services sold outright.
- Lendosa — all railways in the country are owned either by private companies or by companies that could be privatised if desired.
- Listonian Free State — all railways are privately owned.
- Shaelia — private companies may operate railways and lay rail, so long as they have the proper permits and other documentation.
- Trinia — private companies are allowed to run trains in competition with the state rail operator, although the track itself is by law owned by the government (through a separate agency than the one which operates trains).
- Xochimechatl — legal by default, as there are no laws one way or another.
- Mari'im — the law is written in the assumption that rail infrastructure will be government-owned.
- Porto Capital — Transport insfraestructure is government-owned.
Private ownership of airlinesEdit
Is is possible for an airline to be privately owned?
- Aethelnia — The airline industry is entirely privately owned.
- Lendosa — there are no significant restrictions, and most of the local airline industry is privately owned.
- Listonian Free State — all airlines are privately owned.
- Porto Capital — There is one major government-owned airline - AirPC, but also some minor private ones.
- Shaelia — The airline industry is entirely private.
- Trinia — there are no significant restrictions, and private airlines exist.
- Xochimechatl — there are no significant restrictions, and at present, all airlines based in the country are privately owned.
- Mari'im — in theory, it would be possible to establish a private airline, but in practice, the government will always decline to grant a license on the grounds that the applicant would be "surplus to requirements".

- Trinia — commercial airports can be privately owned, although very few actually are.

- Porto Capital — Airports are government-owned.
