In this present study, major effect of transportation on environment is investigated. The work is performed in order to find influence of transportation on rural, urban community and ecosystem globally. As per recent survey according to GOI, significant had been increased in vehicle all over India. It had been seen that rate of increase of vehicles day by day is proportional to level of pollution. There is no effective substitute that had been made to overcome these harmful pollutants generated while transportation in these days. Therefore, in this study, focus is made on effect of pollution on environment with increments of vehicles. This creates air pollution, including nitrous oxides and particulates which is a significant subscriber to global warming through emission of carbon dioxide. This contamination lead to increase in the toxic gases in atmosphere which directly results an impact on ozone layer depletion.
