Top 5 best transport methods in Minecraft

Minecraft provides multiple different ways that players can use to traverse faster around the map. Walking and running in Minecraft may take players a longer amount of time to cover places.

Players can use transportation methods to cover more areas in the world at a faster speed. Minecraft is a huge world, and there is no way players will be able to explore it all on foot.

Players can choose from multiple different methods of transportation in Minecraft, with some being faster than others. The best transportation methods will get players around the world faster and more efficiently

The only issue about these transportation methods is that some of them are a little more dangerous than others, or some require specific hard-to-acquire materials.

Players can create their own transportation methods using materials found around Minecraft, but some of them will have to be found within the world. Some transportation items are really rare, and players can only find them in specific regions in the Minecraft world.

In this article, players will learn the five best transportation methods to travel with in Minecraft.

5 best Minecraft Transportation Methods

Elytra in Minecraft is one of the fastest and most efficient methods of transportation in the game. The only tricky part about it is that these items are not easy to obtain.

Elytras are located inside of end cities, hanging in item frames in the treasure room of the end ship. This is the only way that players can obtain these items, as they cannot be crafted.

This tool allows players to fly around the map using fireworks. Players can cover large distances much faster using these. This item is similar to a jetpack, except that it is considered a chestplate that deals no protection

Nether Portals

Nether portals are one of the fastest transportation methods in Minecraft. This is true not only because it is a portal, but also because players physically teleport when using these.

The only thing is that players end up in the Nether when entering one. A good thing about that though is that one block in the Nether is equvilant to eight blocks in the over world. For example, moving 10 blocks forward in the Nether is equal to covering 80 blocks in the overworld.

Players can place a Nether portal in the Nether to get back to the overworld. Nether portals are made using a 4x5 frame of obsidian, and they can be ignited using flint and steel.

Boats provide a way for players to travel long distances over water at a reduced time. Boats prevent the player from having to swim across water, and also provide a safer method of transportation.

Boats are created using a shovel and five wooden planks. Players can place the boat in the water and steer it in any direction they need to go.

Horses are another method of transportation that players can use to get around the map. Riding horses gives players a method of transportation that is fast and safe.

All players need to ride a horse is a saddle. Players will need to tame the horse and place a saddle on it in order to be able to steer it in any direction that they choose.

Minecart System

Players can create a railway system to travel via Minecart. It is a very easy method of transportation, but it is also one of the most expensive choices of travel within the Minecraft world.

Players will have to use three iron ingots for every eight rails created. Players will need to have a lot of iron saved up if they would like to travel long distances using the rail system.

Transporting items, mobs, and yourself long distances is an important but tiresome task. Thankfully, there are many ways to make the trips easier and faster.

Player transport[]

Walking or running everywhere are viable options, but you may want a faster or smoother option, possibly with added storage benefits. Below are options for transporting player(s) in order of the effort required to construct them.


Horses can be found in plains and savanna biomes, and can be tamed by mounting them until they produce heart particles. A saddle is required in order to control the horse, and it can be equipped with tiered horse armor (Both saddles and horse armor are found in various generated structures). Horses have variable colors and stats, with running speed, jump height, and health all being randomized for each wild horse. A horse that spawns with high stats in all categories makes a useful, tough mount for traversing rough terrain.

Donkeys uncommonly spawn under the same conditions as horses, with the unique ability to be equipped with chests instead of horse armor. This allows for early game, 15-slot mobile storage. However, donkeys spawn with less desirable maximum stats than horses. Fortunately, donkeys and horses can be bred to produce mules, which share the chest ability of donkeys with stats more resembling horses.


Llamas, which spawn in Mountains and Savannahs, are notable for their ability to form a convoy if a llama is being lead by the player. However, since llamas cannot be controlled when mounted by any means, they serve better as item transportation in singleplayer (As they can be equipped with chests, with the amount they can carry being a randomly generated stat). However, if the player is playing with other users, they could ride on the llamas while one player leads.


The Elytra are late-game items found in the End that can be equipped in the chest piece slot. While falling, the player can double-tap the jump button to activate the elytra, allowing the player to gradually glide long distances. This by itself is a powerful transportation method, but the player can enhance their flying with the use of firework rockets to propel themselves in any direction, allowing for extended flight time. However, the player must take note of the elytra's durability, which gradually decreases while flying (The Unbreaking enchantment can be added to slow this effect, and Mending can be added to exchange gathered XP for durability). Phantom membranes can be used to repair elytra in an anvil if necessary. Having a sustainable amount of firework rockets is also fairly expensive if the player does not have a mob farm to easily produce gunpowder. There is also the possibility of the player dying of fall damage if the elytra's durability runs out, or from smacking into a surface at high speeds.


Minecarts allow the player to be transported along rails with no input from the player, with the downside of having to create rail systems to any desired destinations. It can also be quite expensive to create longer rail lines, especially if powered rails are being used. See tutorials for minecart-related redstone contraptions to automate launching, create minecart dispensers, and more.

Boats and ice roads[]

Surprisingly, one of the fastest transportation methods in the game involves a boat on solid ground. When boats are on any variant of ice blocks, they can be controlled as easily as if they were in water, and can travel at immense speeds thanks to the slippery nature of the ice. The speed of the boat can also be adjusted depending on which variant of ice is used; Normal ice is the slowest, with packed ice being in the middle, and blue ice being the fastest option. However, this is possibly the most resource and time demanding method in the game, as the player needs huge amounts of ice, blocks to keep the boat on track, and other materials if the player chooses to decorate the track. Additionally, colliding with mobs can be a considerable hazard, especially hostile ones.

Item transport[]

Transporting items is essential for players who have advanced to the point of having more items than they know what to do with, whether it is for moving items around your base autonomously or moving items across vast distances.

These options are better for moving items across long distances, such as from one home to another.

Donkeys, mules, and llamas[]

As mentioned above, these mobs work well as player/item transport combos. They usually have small inventory spaces, as they are early game options. With leads, many of these mobs can be moved at once, although it can be frustrating with the fragility of leads and rough terrain.

Ender chests[]

An ender chest is a variant of chest obtained with 8 obsidian and an ender eye, with the unique ability to share its inventory with all ender chests across the world (specific to each player). It can be used as a "bank vault" of sorts where all of your most important items are kept, as its contents are completely safe from being stolen. Alternatively, it can be used to deposit items from one location and have those items be immediately accessible from any distance in another ender chest. Furthermore, if a silk touch pick is kept on hand, the ender chest can be picked up freely (otherwise, 8 obsidian minus the ender eye is dropped), allowing for a makeshift extra inventory to carry around.

Shulker boxes[]

End game items that can be crafted from 2 shulker shells and a chest, these boxes allow for the most efficient storage in the game. The size of a single chest, each box retains its contents when broken, allowing for a backpack of sorts. While shulker boxes cannot be placed inside other shulker boxes, just a few shulker boxes in a player's inventory can allow for a small storage room's worth of items to be in the player's hands at any given moment. They can additionally be dyed and named to create catalogs of what items they contain.

Note that shulker boxes can be put inside ender chests, meaning by combining the carry-on ender chest's inventory space with the player's inventory (excluding the hotbar) to fill with shulker boxes, the player would have a total of 1458 inventory spaces for carrying items.

Short-range systems[]

These methods of item transport are best used in transporting items around small areas, such as transporting item drops from a mob farm into adjacent chests.

Water channels[]

By using water source blocks, players can create an item transporting channel that serves as an early game transport system. Combined with soul sand bubble columns, which lift items to higher levels, and magma bubble columns, which pull items down, water channels provide efficient transport. They can additionally be outfitted with ice tracks to make the items move even faster, although this adds to the cost of the system.


Hoppers are essentially item pipes that move items within them into the container it is pointing to. This can include other hoppers, allowing for hopper chains that can transport items quickly. The hoppers can also lead into chests, barrels, dispensers, and more to funnel items into storage rooms or to fuel redstone contraptions. This is a more pricey, slower, and less versatile system than water channels, with the prime downside being their inability to transport items upward (only to the side or downward). Therefore, hoppers are better used sparingly, only to take items from one container to another or from a water channel into a container.

Villager and mob transport[]

The player can transport villagers and other mobs to new locations (for the purpose of starting new villages or baiting mob traps) using a variety of techniques:

  • Minecart: The player builds a minecart track from the village to the destination, then pushes a villager into the cart and pushes the cart to the destination.
  • Water path: The player creates a tunnel or walled path with no exits along the way, and then with two water buckets, uses water to push villagers down the path a few blocks at a time, using the empty bucket to retrieve the water block furthest back. A soul sandbubble column can be used to move villagers upward. Alternatively, if the tunnel is flat, one may use an open fence gate or sign above an ice block adjacent to each last flowing water block to prevent the other adjacent water (source block) to flow backward, therefore creating a cheap "railway".
  • Boat: A simple way to transport a single villager over ground is to push one into a boat and then drive the boat, which can be rowed (albeit slowly) over land. A boat can move upward by using a piston in the ground or creating an upward bubble column. The player can also drive the boat up to the step, place a second boat on the step, break the first boat (without hitting the villager) to cause the villager to move to the second boat. In Bedrock Edition, a boat can be pulled up using a lead.
  • Job blocks/beds: To move a single unemployed villager, the player can place down a job site block and have the villager claim it. Continuously break and place the job site block, luring the villager to where you want it to go. At night, you can do this with beds, but it is dangerous because mobs, especially zombies, can spawn. Alternatively, to move a whole village at once, one can break all beds, job site blocks, and the village bell, and continually place them down like above.
  • Nether portal: If portals have not already been constructed in The Nether, then the player can create a portal at the Overworld destination, travel into the nether and back out again immediately, then build another portal in a village less than 128 blocks from the first portal. After pushing villagers into the village portal (manually or by minecart), then pushing them back out again, letting them "cool down" for 30 seconds, and pushing them back in, the villagers should exit from the first portal.[verify]

What is the fastest way to travel long distances in Minecraft?

For some reason, there is still no proper table about max speed, so I made one myself. Please add any more information you have, either in the comments or via [email protected]

Maybe someone can migrate this to the english minecraft wiki.

Survival mode travelling, ordered by speed


  • Times were measured @ Vers. 1.10 (2016 July)
  • Accuracy: ~0.03 sec
  • As noted - if travelling in the nether, the overworld speed can be multiplied by 8
  • Measured ender pearl travel speed equals the wiki entry. Throwing them up 45° in the air will give the longest teleportation distance, however the fastest way is using them one after another, in a way once the cooldown has finished (1 pearl / sec)
  • Sprinting or drinking speed potions does not affect boat travelling speed
  • * The horse was summoned with attribute movementSpeed: which is the maximum horse speed available, afaik.

  • ** Bumping a thrown ender pearl with TNT can get you thousands of blocks in just a few seconds. However, if the chunks on its route are not loaded, it is rather useless. Only interesting on an intensely populated server.

  • *** Boat on ice: Wiki says 40 b/s which does not match the reference video in this table

    (edit: maybe it needs some time to accelerate and actually is 40 b/s)
19 Weird but Useful Ways to Travel in Minecraft

With how huge a Minecraft world can be, travelling between valuable biomes or loot locations can be a tedious chore. Woodland Mansions, Illager Outposts, Strongholds etc can all be thousands of blocks away from spawn, you need a way to get there easily.

It’s not uncommon to simply find yourself in a sticky spot, too. The Nether is particularly difficult to traverse, so knowing the usefulness of travel based items is important.

I’ll be going through the 10 best transport methods in Minecraft. I won’t just be measuring the speed of which you can get from point A to point B, I’ll gauge other types of usefulness, such as how easy these transport methods are to obtain and if they offer anything different than other methods!


10. Ender Pearl

Dropped by Endermen, these Pearls will teleport you to a location after throwing them. It’ll also deal a bit of damage, though.

Mostly used to quickly access high places, or reach an extremely low place without taking the fall damage. If you’re exploring, bringing a stack of Ender Pearls will make your travels much easier.


9. Pig

Pigs are slow moving mobs, requiring a saddle to be fitted and directed with a carrot on a stick. You can’t store items, equip armor and you’re major vulnerable while riding one.

So why are pigs a decent transport option?

Unlike other mobs, pigs keep travelling in the faced direction indefinitely. You can afk travel as long as you like. Pretty niche but an option you should always consider if you need to step away from the game for a few minutes, but still need to travel.


8. Donkey

One of the most unique mobs in the game, Donkeys are slow moving but they offer something no other transport method can. Placing a chest on a donkey will allow up to 15 inventory slots, for storage. They can fit in boats too, making it a great drop off point to place loot before returning to base.

While Donkeys aren’t effective for covering ground, they are faster than a player’s walking speed. 


7. Riptide Trident

Using the throw attack while Riptide is on your trident will propel you forward. If used while underwater, you can throw yourself through entire oceans quickly. The only downside being you might miss some cool loot locations.

Used from water into air will catapult you into the air, giving you a quick look at the surrounding area.

If you’ve built your base next to a river that comes from the sea, you’ll have an epic way of venturing out into open waters. Place some water near your house, and use Riptide to jump into the river from it.

When you want to return, jump from the river into the water near your house. Even up a hill, Riptide can shoot you so high you can easily go in and out!


6. Rail

The easiest and most expensive way to travel. Costing 3 iron ingots per 8 rails, you’ll need to bolster it with powered rails to keep your Minecart going. Mineshafts will be your best bet for obtaining rails if huge numbers.

After laying a railway down, it’s as simple as jumping in a minecart and chilling until you’ve reached your destination. It’s only so high on the list for it taking a long time to obtain the necessary rails, as well as get the railway operational.


5. Boat

Quick and easy to make, you can chop a single tree down and get a boat going. Great for heading out into open waters, the speed is nice but not so quick you can’t scout the ocean floor for potential loot.

Mobs can get in the boat with you too, in general it’s always good to have a few boats lying around in water locations you regularly visit!


4.  Speed Potion

Easily the cheapest potion to brew, Speed Potions require only sugar as well as Redstone/Glowstone to upgrade. You can go for a 20% speed boost for 8 minutes or a 40% speed boost for 90 seconds. 

While travelling across land, there’s only one other transport method that can travel as fast. If you want to travel solely on your own with no other equipment/mob, Swiftness Potions are one of your best resources.


3. Horse

Horses can come with a variety of speeds and health pools. Some are slow but can take a lot of damage, some offer the fastest land travel method in the game with low health pools. If you get lucky, you can find a horse with the best of both worlds.

Experts from the site established that in the case of the use of short-acting sedatives/hypnotics, withdrawal symptoms may occur in the interval between doses. Sedative/hypnotic drugs, such as Ambien, can cause anterograde amnesia, which is most often observed a few hours after taking the drug, and therefore, to reduce the risk of its development, patients should have conditions for continuous 7-8 hours of sleep.

Able to be out-fitted with armor, your horse will quickly become a staple of your Minecraft play-through. Plains and Savannas spawn horses so if you’re unlucky enough to have neither of those biomes close by, you’ll have to travel using other methods until you find one!


2. Nether Portals

Travelling via Nether Portals is a complicated strategy but can re-pay you in huge dividends if you invest time/resources into it.

Multiple nearby overworld portals can be accessed by the same portal in the Nether, giving you almost instant access to underground caves, Mineshafts or Strongholds, depending on your set-up.

Controlling with portal you end up outside of can be tricky, you do need to find the sweet spots.

There’s an excellent guide on the Minecraft Gamepedia covering this in much more detail.


1. Elytra

Acquiring an Elytra is no easy feat, requiring the conquering of the Ender Dragon and an End City. Once you obtain it though, you’ll gracefully travel through your Minecraft world with no real difficulty. Having it equipped in your chest slot will cause you to glide through the air, if you press the jump key while falling.

Building a 1 block wide tower as high as you can is recommended, placing ladders to get to the top (or use the Nether Portal strategy). After that, you can jump off and cover huge swathes of land without troubles, landing precisely where you mean to.

Getting back is another story though, unless you build these Elytra towers in multiple locations!
