Just like other forms of transportation, auto transport is regulated by the relevant governmental auto-transportagency/department, which is responsible for legislating in all affairs to do with auto transport. There are a variety of auto transport and these include cars, trucks, buses, and motorcycles. Each form of auto transport has its own merits and demerits, utility and function.

The speeds and pollution generated by the different types of auto transport mayl also be different. Sometimes, these characteristics of the different forms of transport will determine the amount of people who use them and the taxes that are levied on them. In addition, certain types of auto transport have better application in certain contexts than others. For instance, a vehicle like a bus is meant for passenger transport and a truck is intended for goods movement. It is common knowledge that some vehicles run on petrol while others run on diesel. Diesel usually costs less than petrol per liter and those vehicles, which run on diesel, are able to cover more distance per liter of fuel than vehicles which run on petrol.
