With a total area of 83,743 square km, a great deal of Arunachal Pradesh
is covered by the Himalayan hills with semi-evergreen, conifer forests and beautiful meadows. Arunachal Pradesh has National Highway number 52 which connects Jonai in Assam with Dirak and an additional highway which connects Tezpur in Assam with Tawang. Since 2007 the road network in Arunachal Pradesh has improved drastically and every village in the state has been linked by road, by funding provided from the central government. Each town has its own bus station and services. All the places inside the state are well connected to Assam. An additional National Highway is also being constructed which will connect Ledo in Assam to Jairampur.
The Arunachal Pradesh State Transport Services (APSTS) runs more than two hundred buses in its fleet providing transportation facilities to the commuters within the state and to the neighboring states. Buses run day and night alternately only on certain routes. Interstate buses to the adjacent states are also available. Apart from these there are many private bus operators who run their services on different routes in the state. Arunachal Pradesh Tourism operates deluxe buses for group tourists. A very few tourist taxis/auto are also available for traveling in all cities.
