Environmental pollution is one of the factors affecting it and it is one of the important issues in the economy. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of economic growth on environmental pollution in the transportation sector during the years 1368 to 1394. Therefore, firstly the theoretical discussions on the effect of economic growth on environmental pollution have been investigated, then this issue has been empirically investigated in the road transport sector and the Kuznets 1 environmental contamination curve has been extracted. Also, Microfit software has been used to analyze and analyze the data using the Distributed Disturbance Pattern (ARDL) pattern.
The results of estimating the model indicate that there is a positive relationship between per capita income and environmental pollution and the negative relationship between per capita income and environmental pollution in the transportation sector. Therefore, Kuznets' environmental hypothesis is true in the country's road transport sector, and also the curve return point shows that Iran's road transport sector has not yet reached the point of return to the Kuznets environmental curve. There is also a positive correlation between the use of oil products and environmental pollution in the road transport sector. Therefore, according to the results of the study, it is suggested that the policies necessary to move towards green and clean technologies will be made as it will lead the country to a sustainable growth path.
