In brief: Only by sex

The only nonsexual transmission is from infected moms to their babies during labor and delivery.
Infection in adults is always acquired sexually. If new infection appears in one member of a couple, it can be safely assumed one of them had another partner recently. However, there are rare exceptions: sometimes chlamydia can be carried for months (maybe even years) before it shows up.
