Rail: It takes nine hours by train to get from Yangon to Naypyidaw. Trains leave at 1200 and arrive at 2100 local time.

Aviation To serve the new capital, the existing airfield at Ela was upgraded to handle the larger planes. It lies 10 miles (16 km) southeast of Kyatpyae.

All the local airlines in Myanmar - Myanma Airways, Yangon Airways, Air Mandalay and the new Air Bagan - have included Naypyidaw as a destination and provide services between it and other cities and towns across Myanmar.

In mid-March 2006, Air Mandalay launched a service flying between Yangon and Naypyidaw. On 5 June 2006, Air Mandalay launched a service between Naypyidaw, and Thandwe (Sandoway) and Sittwe (Akyab) in Rakhine State, to give civil servants better access to western Myanmar.
