This Paper has made an attempt to study on urban air pollution in Bangalore city by emission of gases by vehicleswhich emit from them. The present day environment crisis demands a change in attitude, which initiatives can be takento rescue environment from destruction in the city of Bangalore. But the urban areas have a big share in the present dayenvironmental problems from the automobiles throughout the world. This will finally focus on the attempt on the effectsdue to increase in the vehicle ratio in the city. Based on the facts and data obtained, the scenarios regarding futurevehicle growth and their impact for travel is discussed to over come emissions problems. The main objective is based onthe emission of vehicles and their problems. In future vehicle-based emissions testing should be conducted for at leastonce in three months in Bangalore to gain a more accurate picture of the emissions that Occur from the specific vehiclesin this city. The results posed by important issues on transport and facts of existing situation will be used for therecommendations.

At the global level, the rapid growth in motor vehicle activity has serious energy security and climate changeimplications. The transport sector already consumes nearly half of the world’s oil. But in urban areas – bothdeveloping and developed countries, it is predominately mobile or vehicular pollution that contributes to air quality problem.The sources of pollutants includes emissions from the combustion of fossil fuels in motor vehicles and for industrial processes, energy production, domestic cooking and heating, and high dust levels due to localconstruction, smoking, unpaved roads, sweeping, hotels, restaurants and long-range transport. By this thequality of air has become so poor that, Bangalore is the result of both high emissions from the vehicles andunfavorable conditions.The rapid growth in motor vehicle activity is the challenges to overcome in urban areas in Bangalore duringthe last and this decade. This has brought a serious range of socio-economic, environmental, health, andwelfare impacts on environmental degradation. The rapid growth in motor vehicles in Bangalore is importantnot only because of their locally harmful air pollution effects, but also because of their regional and globalimpacts So the paper deals with the study of air pollution caused by the automobiles in the city of Bangalore
