Library Research Assignment

We find that since the beginning of time, people have been traveling by various modes, from on foot to riding in a supersonic aircraft. Tourism and transportation are inextricably linked. As world tourism increases, additional demands will be placed on the transportation sectors. One finds that air travel dominates long-distance and middle-distance tourism. The private automobile dominates for shorter trips and is the most popular means of travel for most domestic journeys. The automobile is also very important in regional and international tourism. Rail travel now plays a more limited role than it did in the past. However, this mode could increase its market share, especially in Europe and Asia. The development of high-speed trains will increase rail traffic.

Motor coach transportation reaches many communities that are not served by any other public mode; but quantitatively, motor coaches account for a very small percentage of vehicle miles. Cruises are becoming more popular and are the fastest-growing segment of tourism. However, this segment is still small quantitatively.

  • Describe the impact of transportation infrastructure to the success of a tourist destination.
  • Provide at least 2 specific examples of how certain tourism destinations have been either positively or negatively affected because of their transportation infrastructure.
  • If you could travel to any area in the world, where would it be? Describe the transportation infrastructure there and how it would contribute or hinder your travel experience.
