Ministry of Roads and Transportation of Iran (Persian: وزارت راه و ترابری), was the main organ of Iranian Government responsible for administration of roadway, railway, airway and seaway transport inside the country and transport connections between Iran and other countries. Currently its Acting minister is Ali Nikzad.

It was founded in 1877 under the "Ministry of Public Benefits" at the time of Naseredin Shah. The ministry was responsible for roads and bridge construction as well as their maintenance. After the formation of "General Bureau of Roads" in 1922, it was renamed as "Ministry of Ways" by a Parliamentary law in 1929. Later in 1936 Parliament passed a law to call it as "Ministry of Roads", and again on July 6, 1974 It was renamed as "Ministry of Roads and Transportation".
