Cardassian transports were a type of transport vessel utilized by the Cardassian Union during the mid-24th century.

In 2370, Elim Garak had arranged for the release of six Bajoran prisoners in exchange for Cardassian fugitives Natima Lang, Hogue and Rekelen. The prisoners were to be delivered to Deep Space 9 aboard a Cardassian transport, but the deal fell through when the three Cardassians escaped from the station aboard a Cardassian shuttle after being equipped with a cloaking device.

In 2372, the Cardassian transport Rabol transported Gul Dukat to Deep Space 9. Upon its arrival, it requested to beam Dukat directly to Ops. (DS9: "Indiscretion")

A Cardassian transport evacuated Quatal Prime in 2373 after the Maquis poisoned the planet's atmosphere. The Maquis then disabled the transport, forcing Captain Benjamin Sisko to tractor them to safety and let the outlaws escape. (DS9: "For the Uniform")
