In brief: Direct contact
Usually via direct contact, although it is actually quite infrequent to see 2 members of the same family get them in short proximity to each other. I think there are other mechanisms for spread involved.

In brief: Contact
The warts spread by contact, friction sweating along the surface of the skin.
Early treatemt is preferred because extensive warts are much harder to treat.
