Additionally, the R-603 connects Letter to exit 4 of the N-18, which connects to Diskwolde. Lastly, the bridge over the Thimber by Loggham, the R-274, connects to Thimbridge, Saint Salls and New Winn Bay.

Additionally, there is a railway station in the municipality, Chambers Station, which lies on the Chaining Branch, between New Winn Bay and Chaining Bath. Due to its small size, service from this station is halved to one train every hour in each direction.
