Abstract: This study looks at the challenges that environmental degradation and global warming pose for the sustainability of our transportation system. The main exhaust gases from transport were discussed. Also, impact of transport on environment were highlighted to include acid deposition, depletion of non-renewable resources, land degradation, climate change, urban degradation, ozone pollution, water scarcity and health hazards. Lastly, appropriate mitigation measures on the impacts of transport on the environment mentioned include reducing the need for travel, using car efficiently, using environmental friendly fuel and alternative transportation.
